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.

Grab and Go Pick-Up

Grab and Go Bags can be picked up Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the designated pick up location outside the University Center 2nd floor main entrance.

Please have your Bear Number on hand when you arrive. Students picking up Grab and Go Bags are expected to adhere to social distancing guidance. Any individuals on campus should remain more than six feet apart and wear masks covering the mouth and nose.

Bear Share Meal Swipe Donation Program

Students experiencing food insecurity can email bear.pantry@unco.edu to request Bear Share meals loaded on to their student ID. Students can redeem Bear Share swipes from UNC dining halls on campus during hours of operation. You must have your student ID with you to redeem Bear Share meals.
