NMC Food Pantry

The 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 Library. 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

If you would like to volunteer, sign up here!

Pickup procedure during campus closure

New orders can be picked up between 4–5 p.m. on weekdays outside the Osterlin Library on the east side of the building (you may drive your car up between the Power House building, Tanis and the Library). 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.

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) 995-1040 and leave a message. Someone is monitoring calls, and we will respond weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
