Basic Needs Center
The Basic Needs Center addresses the gaps and concerns students have with accessing nutritious food, stable housing, and financial, physical, and mental wellness resources. We are committed to transforming dialogues surrounding the basic needs of students so they can focus on their academic success contributing to holistic well-being.
We strive to increase equitable access to food, housing, and financial, physical, and mental wellness resources for all students by breaking down barriers and transforming the Napa Valley College community.
Basic Needs Center Services:
Enrolled Napa Valley College students can pick up 2-3 bags of assorted groceries every 30 days at the NVC Student Food Basket in the Basic Needs Center.
Please bring your student ID and/or proof of semester enrollment (ex: Canvas page) and submit our monthly groceries survey.
