Welcome to the Gothic Knight 食品分发处 at New Jersey City University (NJCU)!

饿了?

At NJCU, we hear you and we’re here to help.  We’re here to help you graduate and create outstanding campus community.  We want you to be fed.  We’ve created the Gothic Knight 食品分发处 (GKFP) to address food insecurity.  Food insecurity has increasingly become an issue on college and university campuses and can pose a significant barrier to student success. 

Many students come to campus with limited resources and little experience managing their needs. Hunger makes it difficult to study, 睡眠, or engage in academics and social activities at the same level as peers. If our students' physiological needs aren't being met, it ultimately decreases the chances of meeting their full potential and their overall experience at New Jersey City University.

Student, 教师 and 工作人员 referral of a student to the Pantry

We are delighted to listen to the needs of our students and campus community.  One of the ways we listen to the needs is by being forwarded referrals of students that may benefit from the pantry by students, 教师, 和工作人员.  一个同学, 教师 or staff member may see a need for a student who requires additional food items or personal care products.  Once we obtain your referral, we will have a member of the Student Affairs team reach out to the student and determine how to help.  

To refer a student to our team, and to combat food insecurity, please email the NJCU 社区中心 at communitycenter@mrshaydenworld.com
