The Jamil Niner Student Pantry provides food assistance to UNC Charlotte undergraduate and graduate students who 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 foods on a weekly basis to currently registered UNC Charlotte students. 


Shopping Appointments

Thank you for your patience as we navigate keeping the Jamil Niner Student Pantry in operation during the Covid-19 pandemic.
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 are offering in person shopping appointments following Covid-19 safety precautions. Scheduled appointments minimize the number of people in the pantry at one time and allow for Covid-19 contact tracing as needed. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment time you may not be allowed to shop.
