July 15, 2021 — Northern Kentucky University's on-campus food pantry and student community center, FUEL NKU, received $15,000 as part of the Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky's Coronavirus Relief Fund.
FUEL NKU helps address food insecurity on across the university. Since 2013, FUEL NKU has provided food and essentials to students in a compassionate, confidential and safe environment. The support will help FUEL NKU purchase food and basic goods for students through summer months.
