Here for Every Hornet
The mission of the Corky's Cupboard campus food pantry is to foster a healthy university community by providing temporary food assistance in an effort to alleviate hunger. Corky’s Cupboard is located in Memorial Union Room 147, located in the back (south end) of the Center for Student Involvement. This location provides relatively private access for students.
Basic Needs Coalition
Going hungry doesn’t have to be your normal. Neither does worrying about where you’ll sleep tonight or if you can afford to pay your bills. ESU is here to help every Hornet be safer, healthier and more successful. So whether you need help locating affordable housing, want to find financial resources or need some pantry staples to get you to your next meal, Emporia State is here for you.
