MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Morehead State University's Student Government Association (SGA) is partnering with Aramark to help diminish food insecurity among students.
Designed and negotiated by Aramark Director Luke Holbrook and SGA President Brandon Bryer, this partnership will provide 75 free meal vouchers to students in need and students who have run out of meals on their meal plan.
"I've always said since the beginning of my term that when I notice a need among the student body, I will address it," said Bryer. "This time, I am addressing a concern I have seen for students that don't have enough meals to make it through the week."
Students are now able to pick up the vouchers in the SGA office and at all SGA programs. Fifteen of the meal vouchers will be placed in the student resource program, Eagle Essentials, so that students with immediate nutritional and food needs will be able to take advantage of this partnership. Eagle Essentials (215 ADUC) is an outlet for students enduring financial hardships to get the necessities they need for free.
Nathan Hall, marketing coordinator for Aramark, said, "Aramark is a part of this University and this community and we want to help. We want to show students that we care and strive to make sure our actions benefit them."
Each voucher provides students access to five meals. Vouchers can be redeemed at The Rocky Adkins Dining Commons.
