Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) is home to more than 1,200 veterans and their dependents. The university’s commitment to helping veterans further their education earned EKU a No. 3 ranking from Military Times EDGE magazine for 2016.
Studies suggest that one in six Eastern Kentucky University students have likely experienced “food insecurities” at some point in their lives. Now, with the launch of Colonel’s Cupboard, the University is taking steps to ensure that none of its students or their dependents ever go hungry and to increase the likelihood of their academic success.
