Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

North Seattle College offers an on-campus food pantry through their partnership with the United Way Benefits Hub. The food pantry leverages partnerships with the University District Food Bank and Food Lifeline to serve on average 250 people weekly between 2018-2020. Of our people served, 80% are students, 10% are staff, and 10% are community members.

During COVID restricted operations, we offer a curbside pop-up food pantry on Tuesdays from 4-7 p.m. for students, faculty and staff. The pantry is at 9600 College Way North (in the East Parking Lot by the Opportunity Center). You can drive through or walk up to pick up pre-packed bags. We have regular, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. You have the option to place an order so we can have your food ready for you when you come. Please visit tinyurl.com/nscfoodpickup to place an order.
