Food insecurity is a lack of access to enough food for an active, healthy life (U.S. Department of Agriculture, 2014). This session will provide participants with the opportunity to learn how UNC Charlotte faculty, professional staff, students, alumni, community partners, and local corporate sponsors are working to address issues of hunger, nutrition, and food insecurity on our campus and in our community. Presenters will share information about the Jamil Niner Student Pantry and community garden at UNC Charlotte, and they ways in which undergraduate research, learning communities, student internships, and student organizations have bridged faculty, staff, and community participation in the establishment and maintenance of the pantry as a resource. This session will highlight student and community learning through capacity building and will address issues, challenges, and solutions to student food insecurity at UNC Charlotte.
