Hawks' Nest

The Hawks' Nest has provided food to hundreds of hungry students.
We are here for you! And if you're able, please help us help students in need.

  • 400 reusable bags donated

Students: How you can receive help

If you need food assistance, please visit the Hawks' Nest in the ASCC building. The Hawks' Nest works on the honor system; you are not required to document need. If you are a first-time visitor, please bring with you:

  • Your HFC student ID card
  • A copy of your current semester academic schedule (must be enrolled in at least one credit hour during the current semester). This can be on paper, or your mobile device.

Once you fill out an intake form, you will be registered for the academic year and will get a membership card that you can use to get food and supplies up to once a week (maximum four times per month).

Donors: How you can help students

We rely on your donations to run the Hawks' Nest! All donations go directly to help students. Please consider making a personal donation of food or funds, or hosting a food drive and donating the proceeds to the Hawks' Nest.

We need:

  • nonperishable food items (we cannot accept expired food items)
  • toiletries
  • reusable canvas bags

Donation drives on campus take place during the fall and winter semesters. You can also drop off anytime during the Hawks' Nest normal business hours or contact Mandy Earl to arrange a pickup. See more details about what the Hawks' Nest needs and how to donate.
