The Food Cupboard is open to all NHCC students.
We offer ready-to-eat and staple items. We also have supplementary items like toothpaste, shampoo, and notebooks. We can also help students access other community resources.
The Food Cupboard is located in the Campus Center, Room 225 and is open year around. The on-demand feature allows students to e-mail their needs Monday-Friday, then orders are prepared and available for same day pick-up.
Hours of operations are Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:30-6:00pm. Students are allowed ten items per week. A valid student identification is required.
The Food Cupboard can also be accessed anytime by clicking here and including the following information in the email:
- Your next on campus availability
- Your student identification number
- A contact number where you can be reached
Appointments can also be set up by phone, or by e-mail: FoodCupboard@nhcc.edu .
