PURPOSE

The purpose of the Panther Pantry is to ensure that UNI students are able to get their basic food and necessity needs met. We recognize that in order to succeed in the classroom, and here at UNI, students need to have access to food.

WHAT IS FOOD INSECURITY

Food insecurity refers to USDA's measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active healthy life. Food-Insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. It may reflect a household's need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing, medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods (Feeding America, 2018). For our students these trade offs also include tuition, books, and other school expenses. 

High food security means that a person has no limitations gaining access to the food they need. Very low food security means there are multiple reasons why a person is unable to access the food they need, resulting in inconsistent eating patterns and reducing the amount of food they eat.
