About the Huskie Food Pantry

Vision and Mission

Our vision is to serve an NIU student population focused on their education and not challenged by their food insecurity.

We provide supplemental support to currently enrolled NIU students without a meal plan who are experiencing food insecurity at no cost to the student. We employ strategies to create a welcoming and inclusive environment in which students can gather the resources needed to alleviate hunger, make healthy food choices and focus more on academic success than meeting their basic needs. We are committed to providing students with experiential learning opportunities that will prepare them for student career success. In this endeavor, we strive to facilitate the community to provide these resources and opportunities to NIU students in an environmentally and fiscally sustainable manner.
