Bear Pantry Programs
Self Sufficiency Program
The Bear Pantry Staff is committed to supporting and educating students on campus on food insecurities and its impact on the UNC campus. We realize that many of our Bear Pantry students need more support then we are able to give. We are would like to aid students to be in a position were they no longer need to utilize the Bear Bear Pantry. The purpose of the Self Sufficiency Program is to provide students with additional resources to to get them to a position that they are self sufficient. This program will offer assistance in completing a food stamp application, Financial literacy online forum, dietary counseling and job posting.
