Fresh Food Distribution events return to campus with Jan. 25 food giveaway

Kellogg Community College’s monthly Fresh Food Distribution events return to campus this month at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 25.

The events are a partnership with the South Michigan Food Bank that provide free fresh produce, baked goods and protein items to community members during a pickup event the last Tuesday of each month on campus in Battle Creek. Students and others from the community can simply stop in during the event and pick up a free box of food, free of charge while supplies last.

KCC distributed more than 500 boxes of fresh food to those in need through the initiative in 2021. The Jan. 25 event is the first Fresh Food Distribution event of the new year.

Fresh Food Distribution events are held in Parking Lot G — the parking lot next to the Miller Physical Education Building — on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek. Future dates are as follows:

  • Feb. 22
  • March 22
  • April 26

The Fresh Food Distribution events are just one part of a growing food insecurity initiative at KCC that notably includes the campus Bruin Baskets, a campus food pantry initiative that provides free grab-and-go snacks for students at a half dozen stations on campuses in Battle Creek and Coldwater
