Visit the NOURISH HU student pantry

NOURISH HU is Howard University’s student pantry. It is designed to support the short-term food insecurity needs among our students and provides basic hygiene items, school supplies, and household cleaning products. 

Students can choose from a variety of non-perishable and refrigerated food items that require minimal preparation. On occasion, through the generosity of community organizations and other donors, the pantry has specialty food items that can be prepared in a fully functioning kitchen environment.

Who Is Eligible?

All currently enrolled Howard University students experiencing temporary food insecurity are eligible to receive assistance from the pantry. Access to pantry resources is made by appointment.
