Donating to the Pantry

Our pantry is stocked solely through donations, and we appreciate your support of the UNT Food Pantry presented by Kroger!

Monetary Donations

You can give online through UNT Advancement here by writing in 'UNT Food Pantry' with the 'other' option on the drop down.  Monetary donations help us purchase a variety of foods that have not been donated as well as help us purchase items for holiday meal kits.

Faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction during the annual “We Care, We count” campaign

You can send a check directly to the UNT Food Pantry Presented by Kroger at Dean of Students, 1155 Union Circle #305358, Denton, Texas 76203.

Physical Donations

Items can be dropped off at the Diamond Eagle Student Resource Center, behind the back of Crumley Hall, Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm. The entrance is at the back of Crumley Hall under the large green awning, there will be a railing & ramp up to the door, and it will say “Diamond Eagles Student Resource Center” on the outside. 

Items can also be dropped off at the Union, suite 409, in The Dean of Students M-F, 8am - 5pm

We can arrange to have a staff member pick up the items from you on the UNT campus. Please email to request a pick up.
