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:

  • Student lobby: Charging & Wi-Fi
  • NVC Student Food Basket: Free 2-3 bags of assorted groceries once every 30 days for current NVC students.
  • Student Express Food Pantry: Snacks for a quick bite to eat between classes.
  • Connections to community resources.
