Mission

In the pursuit of equity and accessibility for all students and employees, the Bearcat 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.

Pantry Operation

We ONLY offer non-perishable foods. Items 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 offer personal hygiene items, including soap, shampoo, toilet tissue, feminine products and toothpaste. These are store-quality unopened packages.
