Food Insecurity Statement
The Jamil Niner Student Pantry provides food assistance to UNC Charlotte students and employees experiencing food insecurity. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Our pantry offers a variety of nutritious non-perishable and fresh foods on a weekly basis to currently registered UNC Charlotte students and to UNC Charlotte employees experiencing food insecurity.
The Jamil Niner Student Pantry welcomes everyone in our Niner Nation community regardless of race, age, gender, nationality, family or immigration status, ability, religion, or sexual orientation.
