Since January 2015, when the Dean of Students’ Office launched the UNT Food Pantry, it has been visited 1,836 times by students who found themselves unable to buy healthy, nutritious food and personal items after covering their other expenses. During the 2016-17 fiscal year, the food pantry has served 494 students.
The food pantry is located in the University Union, Suite 409, and is open from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Thursday and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Friday. Any current student who can’t afford to purchase food can visit the food pantry after a quick check-in with the Dean of Students’ Office.
The UNT Food Pantry accepts donations of food and personal items from members of the UNT community. Currently, the pantry needs breakfast items, chips, canned fruit, canned meats, soup, side dish foods, and packaged noodles are always needed. See the full list of items needed. Student volunteers are also needed to help operate the pantry.
Help feed fellow Eagles by bringing your donation to the University Union, Suite 409. Faculty and staff who sponsor student organizations who may be willing to volunteer can learn more by contacting the Dean of Students Office. Learn more about UNT’s food pantry or send an email for questions.
