Reusable Bags for Food Pantry Patrons


The UNT Food Pantry presented by Kroger had 3780 visits in the 2021-2022 academic year, which was more than double from the previous year. Every time a student visits the food pantry, they are given bags of food for 2-5 days. In an effort to reduce that waste, the pantry received funding to purchase reusable bags. With these bags, they would cut their waste almost completely. These bags can also serve multiple uses for the student outside of transporting food from the food pantry, such as grocery shopping, thus cutting further plastic use and waste.

Funded amount: $10,000.00
