Nourishing Minds Fund
Powered by Your NCSAC

Developed in 2015, by Teresa Quinlan, The Nourishing Minds Fund was created to battle food insecurity on campus.

From the creation of this fund, NCSAC has been able to help thousands of students.

 Nourishing Minds Programs 

The goal of the fund is to help ensure that all students of Niagara College never worry about where their next meal will come from. These two essential programs were created from the generous donations the fund receives on an annual basis.

 Rise and Shine Breakfast Program 

The Rise and Shine Breakfast Program is at both campuses every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at both campuses! Find us from 8am - 9:30am outside the office at Daniel J. Patterson Campus, and in front of The Core at the Welland Campus!

 Grocery Gift - Card Program 

We changed the traditional Food Bank program to be more inclusive and easier to use for all students of Niagara College. Please see your academic advisor or a college counsellor to apply.
