NMC Food Pantry

nmc-food-pantry-logo.jpgThe NMC Food Pantry operates year-round in order to supply students with nutritious food and personal items in order to combat food insecurity. Food insecurity is the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Faculty, staff, students, alumni and other community organizations work together to provide convenient, discreet access to food for NMC students on a year-round basis.

Donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries may be dropped off in the Osterlin Building (#3 on the Main Campus Map). These staple items are especially helpful:

  • Cereal
  • Canned fruit
  • Mac 'n' Cheese/Boxed Meals
  • Canned tuna or chicken
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Peanut butter
  • Rice/rice packets
  • Soups
  • Canned vegetables
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Shampoo
  • Soap
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste

To donate money through the NMC Foundation, please visit nmc.edu/give.

For more information, or if you'd like to volunteer to help out, please contact Paul Kolak at pkolak@nmc.edu or the Student Life Office at (231) 995-1118.

Thank you for your support of NMC students!

New orders can be picked up on weekdays inside the Osterlin Building at the Testing Center desk. Please be sure you pick up only your bag so you will get what you ordered, as will other NMC students placing orders. You will be given your bag order number through the pick-up email we send.

Orders can be picked up:

  • Monday & Thursday: 8 a.m.–8 p.m.
  • Tuesday & Wednesday: 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
  • Friday: 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

If you are unable to pick up during this time, please let us know by replying to our pick-up email, and we will try to accommodate a mutually convenient time. Orders will be available for pick-up for one week after ordering. Subsequent food pantry orders may be submitted up to once per week.

If you have questions, please call (231) 995-1118 and leave a message. Someone is monitoring calls, and we will respond weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
