Louie’s Cupboard – Founded and operated by students, Louie’s Cupboard provides perishable and nonperishable food and resources to the NAU community. Many students struggle with the expenses of college. Some struggle to afford books or rent, but many college students face limited financial resources to buy groceries or a meal plan.
