The pantry provides assistance to UNC Charlotte undergraduate and graduate students that struggle with food insecurity.  In 2013 the USDA defined food insecurity as a condition that occurs when people do not have enough resources to feed themselves.  We offer a variety of nutritious meals and frequently give demonstrations on what meals can be made with the food in our pantry.


Eligibility

Thank you for your patience as we navigate keeping the Jamil Niner Student Pantry in operation during this time.
In conjunction with the university's guidance on COVID-19, an effort to reduce close personal contact and help keep our clients and staff safe, we have made the decision to temporarily have pantry staff shop and bag groceries for you. You will still receive the same amount of nutritionally balanced groceries.
 
The Pantry is now open for Fall semester!

Click on Pantry Request Form to place an order for either Tuesday or Wednesday. Once you submit your order, your order is confirmed. You will not receive an additional email.

1. Fill out one of the forms by 11:59 pm the evening before you would like to pick up groceries. From this point forward, if you're unable to pick up your order on your requested day, you'll need to notify us by 10:00am on the day of pick-up.If this doesn't happen, we will provide you with a Walk-Up bag with a variety of food the next time you order. You will still be provided with food but not to your specifications
2. Please consider requesting a pick-up for a time later than 2:00pm. This creates a rush for our team and a line outside of the pantry which isn't optimal for anyone.
3.When you arrive (not before as your cold items will be placed in your bag at that time and we want to keep them fresh!), send an email with your name as the subject so we know you are here.
4.We will do our very best to accommodate your food requests. However, if we don't have items, we may need to make substitutions.
5. Use this website for updates regarding the pantry.
