Fight Food Insecurity at the Annual Pantry Bowl!
By Sophia Raspanti
Team up to fight food insecurity!
This year, as part of the annual Pantry Bowl, NC State and UNC Chapel Hill are facing off to reduce food insecurity on campus. During the week of November 19-26, the two universities will go head-to-head to see who can receive the most gifts to their respective food pantries. Last year, the Pantry Bowl raised $148,099.93 from over 2,235 monetary gifts, which was more than $60,000 than the competition’s first year!
It doesn’t stop there!
If the total number of monetary gifts exceeds UNC’s total from last year (1,107), Carolina Cupboard will receive $11,500 from Gary and Kathy Armstrong, Allison Friedman, and other generous Carolina supporters.
How Can I Support the Pantry Bowl?
To donate to this year’s Pantry Bowl, students are encouraged to visit the Pantry Bowl website where they will choose a university to support. Students should select the Carolina Cupboard button and will be directed to a university giving form. The minimum amount for a gift is $5.
The gift total will be updated at 5pm each day on the Pantry Bowl site, and the final totals will be revealed on November 27th.
Please note that for this competition, only monetary gifts will be accepted. All donations are tax-deductible, and an email will be sent to you as a receipt for tax purposes.
