Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College Establishes Campus Food Pantry

New Town, ND – Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College (NHSC) recently launched an on-campus food pantry to provide food, toiletries, other necessities, and emergency assistance to students in need.

The development of the NHSC Food Pantry was led by Student Development and Retention counselor, Deanna Rainbow. “The need for support has always been there but the pandemic intensified our urgency to create this program. Through various grants and other funding, we have a great start, but we intend to grow the program and extend services throughout the campus and the community. We want our students to focus on their education, not whether they’ll be able to eat that day,” says Rainbow.

NHSC offers in-demand certificate programs and associate degrees as well as three bachelor’s degrees. The college offers high-quality cultural, academic, and vocational education. NHSC provides encouragement and support to facilitate successful college careers and builds a strong, positive identity for the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nations or Three Affiliated Tribes
