Food Pantry

Being a college student can be a full-time job. Don’t let hunger keep you from doing your best. Nevada State University has an onsite food pantry available to all Nevada State students. The food pantry is maintained through donations and consists of non-perishable goods and hygiene products. No application process or qualifying factors needed to access the food pantry. Open door policy.
