UNT Dallas will continue its monthly mobile food pantry this Friday, from 9 a.m.-noon. In partnership with the North Texas Food Bank, the free, drive-through service is
open to the public. The partnership was launched to help students during the pandemic
but has been extended due to growing needs of the community related to inflation,
job loss and more.
“Between the post-pandemic fallout and rising costs, North Texans are continuing to tighten their budgets as food insecurity continues to affect so many,” said UNT Dallas Pres. Bob Mong. “We hope our monthly food distribution events will ease that burden for not only our student population but also our neighbors in need of food support. Thank you to our loyal partner, North Texas Food Bank, for their exhaustive efforts to help our community stay strong and healthy.”
Participants will be asked to complete a simple intake form while remaining inside their cars. UNT Dallas volunteers will load a box of food into each person’s trunk.
UNT Dallas police officers will direct the flow of traffic entering and exiting the UNT Dallas campus.
UNT Dallas is seeking volunteers to help throughout the year. If interested, sign up here or, for questions, email Eronia King at firstname.lastname@example.org.
