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.


To be eligible to receive food from the pantry, UNC Charlotte students must:

1. Provide their 49er ID card to insure current student status.  

2.  Complete intake form upon arrival at the pantry.
