Student Food Pantry

The UNT Health Science Center CARE Team has recognized that in order for students to be well and succeed academically, basic needs must be addressed. As a result, the Office of Student Affairs established the food pantry in the fall semester of 2016, in an effort to assist UNTHSC students impacted by food insecurity.

Who We Serve

Any current UNTHSC student in need can visit the food pantry.


8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.


Student Services Center Room 232.

The use of the UNTHSC food pantry does not require application or approval. It is available to any student in need, but please weigh and record everything taken. The Office of Student Affairs has established protocols that allow for student confidentiality and dignity to be maintained and respected.

Students who visit the food pantry can request to meet with a staff member to discuss any difficulties they may be facing by checking-in at the front desk of Student Affairs on the 2nd floor of the Student Service Center and simply asking to meet with a staff member from the CARE Team. Students can also choose to email the CARE Team to set up an appointment as well. When appropriate, referral to additional campus and/or community resources will be made.
