Student Government Association

The NEST Food Pantry

To ensure the health and safety of Monmouth students and remain compliant with Governor Murphy’s executive order, the University has made the difficult decision to suspend The Nest activity.  The Nest will re-open when health officials deem it safe to do so. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Every year, approximately 30% of the students who attend a college or university in the US, experience some form of food insecurity.  After paying tuition, buying books and/or paying a monthly rent, many students are left wondering whether or not they will have enough money to buy food or personal items such as toiletries.  It is with that in mind, that the Student Government Association (SGA) created The Nest food pantry to support Monmouth University undergraduate and graduate students who do not have a meal-plan.  Students who do not have any form of meal-plan can come to the Nest to select non-perishable food items (i.e., pasta, canned foods, cereals, crackers, etc.) beverages, and toiletries (i.e., toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, etc.).

Donate to The Nest
SGA has placed collection bins on-campus and one at the Graduate Center for members of the Monmouth University community to drop off donations.  Donation bins are located on the first floor of the Great Hall, the first floor of the Student Center, Magill Commons Dining Hall, the Library and the Plangere Center.  SGA will accept all non-perishable food items such as:  canned fruits, vegetables, soups and dinners, peanut butter, dry goods, cereals, crackers, condiments, bottled beverages, freeze dried foods (i.e. ramen noodles, soups, meals, etc.).  SGA will also accept donations of personal items/toiletries such as:  toothpaste, tooth brushes, dental floss, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, cleaning products, toilet paper, sanitary items, paper towels, etc.
