LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is offering a free food pantry at the Memorial Union on the Lawrence campus.

Shoppers can visit the store twice a week. They receive 15 points each time they visit and they spend the points as they see fit. For example, a package of meat is five points and rice is three pounds.
