The WKU Food Pantry will remain open and operational, despite claims on social media that President Timothy Caboni has eliminated the service.

In an Instagram story, a student said Caboni closed the food pantry because it was too “social justice oriented.”

Bob Skipper, media relations director, said the reports on social media was the first time he or Caboni had heard of the issue.

Skipper said Brian Kuster, vice president of student affairs, has been in talks of potentially relocating the food pantry, but the process is still in the beginning stages.

The food pantry is currently in the Office of Sustainability next to Gary Ransdell Hall and is open to all WKU students, faculty and staff.
