Money, Food & Housing
- On the North Seattle College campus, we offer a curbside pop-up food pantry on Tuesdays from 4-7 p.m. for students, faculty and staff. The pantry is at 9600 College Way North (in the East Parking Lot by the Opportunity Center). You can drive through or walk up to pick up pre-packed bags. We have regular, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. You have the option to place an order so we can have your food ready for you when you come. Please visit tinyurl.com/nscfoodpickup to place an order.
- Students are eligible for increased Basic Food (SNAP) benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Basic Food is extra money for groceries to help you put healthy food on the table. A family of 4 can receive over $600 a month for food! Learn more about this great resource and how to apply by visiting wafoodhelp.org or scheduling a Benefits Hub appointment.

Balancing work, life and college isn’t easy. That’s why we’ve partnered with the United Way Benefits Hub to help students navigate financial challenges and cover basic needs while in school. The Benefits Hub offers one-stop financial assistance through one-on-one coaching in the following areas:
- Emergency funds
- Food access
- Housing support
- Financial coaching & paying for college
- Other benefits, including FAFSA/WAFSA support, reduced bus fare, childcare, tax preparation and more
We work with you to make sure that no matter what, you are able to stay in school and complete your program.
Benefits Hub services are available virtually during COVID-19 restrictions. Coaches are hosting meetings over Zoom or the phone.
