COVID-19: News and Campus Updates | Fall 2021 Plans

At this time, the Bear Pantry will be supporting students’ access to food through limited shopping hours. Sign up for a time to shop HERE. Please continue to refer to this page for updates to Bear Pantry hours and services.

Bear Pantry at UNC

UNC's Bear Pantry is a collaborative initiative on campus to assist students in our community who are faced with food insecurity. Bear Pantry supplements the food supply for any UNC students experiencing hunger and struggling to buy food.

College students who experience food insecurity struggle to support themselves while working, attending classes, and dealing with other life issues. Bear Pantry hopes to minimize food insecurity while students work toward completing their education.

Shopping Appointment

Students can request a shopping appointment in the Bear Pantry on Wednesdays from 10am-12noon and Thursdays from 12-2pm on the second floor of the University Center.

Students are able to sign up for one appointment per week. During shopping appointments, students can select up to 10 items from the pantry and then check out with the Pantry host. 


To  schedule your shopping appointment, please complete the Microsoft Bookings form in advance.  

Bear Pantry users are responsible for arriving at the Bear Pantry at their scheduled pick-up time. If students arrive outside of their designated time, they will need to wait until staff is available to assist them or may need to reschedule for a different time.
