NKU's National Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS) chapter has adopted FUEL NKU for one of two annual community service projects. FUEL is committed to addressing food insecurity on campus and serves about 300 students each week, making monetary donations essential to their mission. The NSLS members are thrilled to launch this online fundraising initiative to support the work of FUEL NKU.
What is FUEL?
- FUEL = Feeding the University and Enriching Lives.
- FUEL NKU was created in the Spring of 2013.
- It started with the needs of a few hungry students and the support of one faculty member, Dr. Jessica Averitt Taylor.
- It has grown to a 2,300 square-foot space that provides food and toiletry items to hundreds of students each semester.
- FUEL NKU has been the model for many other universities in the development of their own campus pantries.
What will $2,000 provide?
- FUEL's budget for approximately two weeks
- 3,000 pounds of food and toiletries
- Supports over 300 student visits
FUEL empowers students by providing a safe, welcoming and confidential campus center with nutritional services, case management services and community engagement activities. FUEL's staff are advocates for students.
We assure student food security and enrich the lives of students through education, engagement and advocacy.
THANK YOU for supporting NKU students.
