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

Scheduled appointments minimize the number of people in the pantry at one time. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment time you may not be allowed to shop and receive a to-go bag instead.
