Louie’s Cupboard—a food pantry for NAU
Many students struggle with the expenses of college. Some struggle to afford books or rent, but many college students face limited financial resources to buy groceries or a meal plan. There has been a growing trend of college students throughout the nation of not being able to afford something as simple as food, in exchange for financing their education. Although it is wonderful being a Lumber Jack or Jill, in comparison to living in Tucson or Phoenix, students attending school in Flagstaff face a higher cost of living.
The concept of a campus food pantry—Louie’s Cupboard—started with a class project geared towards social movements. With support from First-Generation Programs and Campus Dining, Louie’s Cupboard became a reality.
Each year, we serve hundreds of students, staff and faculty through biweekly food distributions. We provide nonperishable canned and boxed goods, including vegetables, fruit, meat, beans, pasta, grains and more.
