The Aggie Source campus pantry for food and personal care items officially opened on February 5, 2019. The Aggie Source Food Pantry is located at 205 Nocho Street, Suite 115, in the old Sebastian Health Building. The food pantry is run primarily by students, with the goal of serving our students to help fight a societal issue that plagues our communities: hunger and food insecurity.

In collaboration with the College of Agricultural and Environmental Science and Student Affairs, this facility is the first of its kind at North Carolina A&T and will provide temporary relief through critical food services to students at North Carolina A&T.

We hope to serve as a model for how communities can develop their own healthy food environments and enterprises by engaging, educating, and empowering them.

Additionally, the program will provide our students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to volunteer and give back to our campus community by furthering our mission of service and engagement.
