The RiverHawk Food Pantry is open to all NSU students. 

Accessing the Food Pantry

Students are asked to fill out an intake form the first time they access the pantry. After the initial use, students simply need to present their NSU ID when visiting the pantry. This is used for reporting purposes to help us determine how often the pantry is being used. 

Announcing New Online Registration

The RiverHawk Food Pantry is excited to launch a new online registration for the 2016-2017 school year. This registration will allow the pantry to do more accurate reporting of use and allow patrons to register in a way that is convenient for them. After registering online, students will still need to present their NSU ID when visiting the pantry.
