Welcome to the DoS Food and Housing Insecurity page.

Fighting Hunger with Food Banks

The Dean of Student Office has partnered with the UNT Food Bank and North Texas Food Bank to fight hunger on our campus. Students can visit the UNT Food Bank any time to get food and toiletries. They have also monthly workshops to give students the opportunity to sign up for the SNAP program with the North Texas Food Bank. See Details Below.

At the UNT Libraries, we want to help too! Our Food for Fines program provides regular, ongoing donations to the UNT Food Bank.

1 can = $1

Bring cans to waive library fines up to $20 a semester. More Details Below.

Food For Fines

Want to help help those our are hungry at UNT and in Denton?

The UNT Libraries Food for Fines drive has been so popular that we decided to expand it. You may bring up to 20 cans per semester to the Library Services Desk at Willis or Discovery Park to waive your overdue fines. With each can you bring in, one dollar will be removed from your library account. Food for Fines cannot be used for damage or replacement fees. Canned food items must be:

  • 12 oz. or more
  • Not expired, not dented
  • Not from a Food Pantry

Donations go to the UNT Student Food Pantry and Denton County Friends of the Family
