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.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate keeping the Jamil Niner Student Pantry in operation during the Covid-19 pandemic.
