The Spartan Food Pantry program is a Division of Student Affairs initiative aimed at decreasing food insecurity on campus. The pantry stocks a variety of dry and canned goods, limited produce, toiletries, and school supplies. There are two food pantries located on campus and students can shop once a week for free groceries and supplies. The Spartan Food Pantry program is managed by a team of student interns and staff. Both pantries are open to all NSU residential or commuter students.
