Eagle Essentials

Students who don't have adequate food and essential items can't perform as well academically. When students struggle with these issues, Eagle Essentials can help. It provides students with everyday items at no cost, including non-perishable food items, hygiene products and school supplies. It's located at 206 ADUC.

  • Food: macaroni & cheese, ramen noodles, fruit cups, canned food
  • Hygiene Products: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, feminine products, shampoo, soap
  • School Supplies: pens, pencils, highlighters, notebooks, folders, notecards

Any MSU student with an Eagle Card ID can access MSU’s Food and toiletry pantry. All items are free of charge, with no questions asked.

  • Monday 11-2 p.m., Tuesday 2-4 p.m., Wednesday 11-2 p.m., Thursday 4:30-5:30 p.m.

MSU students may stop by anytime during hours of operation to pick up food and toiletry items.

If you would like to donate items to Eagle Essentials, please do so during hours of operation. Monetary donations, gift cards, and non-perishable food and toiletry items are accepted. We cannot accept items that are outdated or require laundry service. Payroll deduction is available for all faculty and staff who want to donate.

For questions or emergency access to Eagle Essentials outside of operational hours, please arrange an appointment by contacting Jane Kelly at j.tenyer@moreheadstate.edu or call the Office of Student Activities at 606-783-2071.
