Food shortages in Tokyo

Shortly after the earthquake, many Tokyo residence have been stocking up on food thereby making our students who have not elected the meal plan dorm to eat out at restaurants or at fast food establishments. KCP has instructed the dorm managers in non-meal plan dorms to search out grocery stores and start providing food to our students at KCP’s expense. This has been successful and students in non-meal plan dorms such as the one in Ikebukuro can now enjoy a more satisfying meal. We believe the grocery stores lack of food is a temporary reaction to the earthquake and that more food will become available in the near future.
