Thank you for helping us make an impact in the lives of our Bear Community. We are grateful for your generosity! 

Gratitude from our Students

Thank you for so much for providing students at UNC with this service. It is because of you that students like me do not have to struggle everyday to find food.

When I first heard of the Bear Pantry I was so excited.  I do not know what I would do without you all.  I have two kids at home and our fridge is completely empty.  It is places like this that give me strength mentally and physically to finish my degree at UNC because I know that the people here care.

Thank you to all the Bear Pantry donors. This semester has been a struggle for me because I was more concerned about where my next meal would come from and not my classes; this changed once I found the Bear Pantry. Due to your support things are looking up for me.
