Committed to ending hunger on campus
Across the country, four-year colleges and universities, and two-year community colleges are reporting an increasing number of students arrive to class hungry or food insecure – defined as lacking reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable, nutritious food. A 2018 survey of 86,000 students from 123 two- and four-year institutions throughout the United States by the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice, showed that 45% of respondents were food insecure in the prior 30 days. NSCC is committed to removing this obstacle for students by offering food resources on and off-campus.
Free farmers market-style distribution of food, fresh fruits and vegetables. Open to the entire college community. The mobile market will be offered on both the Danvers and Lynn Campus and will be open to NSCC students, faculty and staff.
The Campus Cupboard is an on campus food pantry, FREE to all enrolled students at North Shore.

*Note: It is important to call the food pantry before going to be sure it is still open, as the situation is quite fluid. Pantries open today, may not be open tomorrow.
