In response to community need, HandsOn Kansas State, in conjunction with Harvesters Community Food Network of Topeka, has rescheduled their Mobile Food Distribution to Friday, April 3. The event will start at 3 p.m. (one hour earlier than normal) in parking lot C-1 of the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex, and will continue as long as supplies last.
The mobile food distribution is open to all members of the K-State and Manhattan community with fresh fruits, vegetables and non-perishable food items offered at no cost.
To adhere to social distancing guidelines and best public health practices, some adjustments will be made to the distribution. Fewer than ten volunteers will be managing the event, and will practice social distancing while distributing food. Participants will be asked to open and close their vehicle trunk or door, and volunteers will place pre-packed boxes into vehicles. Individuals who do not have a vehicle may walk over to pick up food. However, transportation back to their home will not be provided due to social distancing orders.
Additionally, the distribution scheduled for April 17, will still take place and begin at 4 p.m.
HandsOn Kansas State is a program housed within the Staley School of Leadership Studies that promotes civic learning and leadership through meaningful volunteer and service opportunities between campus and community. HandsOn strives to develop socially-responsible citizens, knowledgeably equipped for active participation.
