Prairie Wolf Pantry

The Prairie Wolf Pantry, located on the first floor of Smith-Curtis (room 124) is a campus food pantry open to anyone with a current Nebraska Wesleyan University ID card. The Pantry’s mission is to contribute to the overall health and wellness of the NWU community by providing free access to nutritious food options. The Pantry also serves as a source of information about other avenues to obtain food in the community. We want to ensure no member of the NWU community goes hungry because of a lack of adequate income or access to food.

The Pantry is operated from the generosity of monetary, in-kind and food donations from students, faculty, staff and alumni as well as the commitment of campus volunteers who staff it during hours of operation.

Hours of Operation 

  • During the summer, the pantry is open by appointment. You can request an appointment by emailing nwupantry [at] (nwupantry[at]nebrwesleyan[dot]edu). A member of the pantry board will contact you within 24 hours to schedule a time for you to come shop.
