In the pursuit of equity and accessibility for all students and employees, the Pay It Forward Food Pantry will provide a source of food and necessities for Northwest students and employees. The target audience is individuals who are experiencing food insecurity and hunger. By providing a food pantry our goal is to help students and employees be successful.
The food pantry, located in the Material Distribution Center adjacent to the University Police Department, is accessible from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and staffed by University Police. Northwest’s Pay It Forward Committee will stock and maintain the pantry shelves to ensure quality products are available.
We will ONLY offer non-perishable foods. These will include canned, boxed and commercially packaged items that are in store quality condition and are not out dated. It also includes items such as canned fruits and vegetables, boxed macaroni and cheese, and packaged goods such as ramen noodles. We will offer personal hygiene items, for example, soap, shampoo, toilet tissue, feminine products, toothpaste, etc. These will be store quality unopened packages.
Students and employees interested in accessing the food pantry should visit the University Police front desk and ask for assistance. Students and employees must present their Bearcat Card to an officer, who will then provide access to the food pantry.
Northwest accepts food donations for the pantry at the Student Engagement Center in the J.W. Jones Student Union and at the University Police Department. Monetary donations to support the food pantry should be directed to the Northwest Foundation and are tax deductible.
