Office of Student Affairs
Staff in the Office of Student Affairs will work to understand your unique needs and identify appropriate on and off-campus resources and services.
Cardinal Kitchen is Ball State University’s on-campus food pantry that offers nutritional items and hygiene products for students at no cost. The pantry is located in the Student Center and is available for use to all undergraduate and graduate students. We host weekly openings the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Tuesday over every month from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
When you visit the food pantry you will go to the Student Center room L26 (in the basement, near Cardinal Lanes Bowling Alley), where there will be lobby space for Cardinal Kitchen. You can fill out a paper form or utilize our electronic QR code to complete the form, and enter your BSU ID. The process for getting food and hygiene resources is discrete. Offices close at 5 p.m., and we try to put in extra effort to make sure every student feels comfortable getting these resources.
If a student would like to visit Cardinal Kitchen, but is unable to make one of our openings, they can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be more than happy to schedule another time for them to pick up items during the week. In addition, if a student is in quarantine, they can contact us at email@example.com and we will schedule a time to drop off items outside their home.
We want you to know that this process is individualized and that we are here to offer you free resources to help you succeed while on campus! Come see us or follow us on Twitter @BSUCardKitchen or Facebook for updates and information.
