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 have established two food pantry locations on campus in an effort to assist UNTHSC students impacted by food insecurity.
