HandsOn Kansas State, in conjunction with Harvesters Community Food Network of Topeka, will host three mobile food distributions during the fall 2020 semester. The events start at 4 p.m. in parking lot C-1 of the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex.
The mobile food distribution is open to all members of the K-State and Manhattan community with fresh fruits and vegetables offered at no cost, while supplies last. Details on event procedures, including a map of the area, are available here.
To adhere to health and safety guidelines, a limited number of volunteers will be managing the event, and will wear masks and gloves while practicing social distance. Participants may be asked to open and close their vehicle trunk or door. Volunteers will place food items directly into vehicles at three stations
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.
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.
