Established in 2019 with a donation from Food Lion Feeds, the Bowie State University Nutrition Lounge provides a place for students to relax, study and have a place to access and enjoy free healthy foods.

The university is committed to providing students with wraparound support to empower them to reach their full potential through academic success and personal well-being. The innovative Nutrition Lounge provides a place for students to gather between classes for healthy snacks and tips on healthy eating.

The Bowie State Nutrition Lounge works with partner organizations to ensure the lounge is stocked regularly and abides by strict food safety standards.
