Do you have old kitchen supplies that are taking up space or you are no longer using? LSUS students could use your help!
LSUS Senior and Food Pantry intern, Madalyn Latour, is holding a kitchen supply drive for students in need of kitchen essentials.
The LSUS Food Pantry, located on the second floor of the University Center, helps around 50 students each month by providing them with various foods like canned goods, produce, and so much more. While the Food Pantry has a vast amount of food options for students, Latour noticed there was a lack of kitchen supplies for students to cook the food.
Latour said, “This drive will allow students to have basic kitchen supplies that they need but they may not be able to afford as a college student. For example, the Food Pantry has lots of canned goods, but some students may not have a can opener.”
The supplies they are looking for are gently used or new pots and pans, utensils, appliances, cookbooks, storage containers, décor, or anything else a student may find useful in the kitchen. They ask that all donations are in good condition.
Latour’s goal is to help take stress away from students who are worrying how they will find or cook their next meal.
The Food Pantry will be accepting donations for the drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 16 through March 18.
