From the students:
quotation mark
NKU is a very helpful organization to me as a college student (especially being an international student) — financially helpful through freely providing one of the basic needs — food.
quotation mark
I've been able to eat healthier and cleaner over the last two years from fuel. I’ve lost 40 lbs because of it and got in shape. Fuel has been a great way for me to keep me happy and healthy but not cost an arm and leg.
quotation mark
Fuel NKU is a way to destigmatize the need for free produce and other snacks or necessities through opening it to all students as well as a way to aid in college students being able to spend money in other ways that they need.
quotation mark
Free shopping to keep students alive!
quotation mark
FUEL NKU is so so helpful to me. I pay for all my school & also other expenses like rent/utilities. Fuel helps me relieve stress because I am able to save so much money that I would normally have to be spending on groceries every week. I am so thankful that we go to a school that offers this service.
quotation mark
It helps me knowing that I can get food in case of an emergency, anytime, right here on campus. So helpful!
quotation mark
It means easy access to food and health supplies that are hard for me to get otherwise.
