Pack Provisions 2021

1 in 4 students reported experiencing food insecurity, according to a 2020 Civic Engagement survey of all students at UNR.


"...there were days I didn't get to eat at all, until I had Pack Provisions."- Anonymous Student


Food insecurity in college is associated with many unfavorable outcomes including poor health, difficulty concentrating and even an increased dropout rate. Supporting our students to help meet their basic needs is pertinent in their success, ensuring they remain focused on finishing their degree without the worry of where their next meal is coming from. Your support to Pack Provisions will make all the difference for students facing food insecurity and help keep them on track to graduate.


In the last academic year, Pack Provisions had 4,211 total visits. This is nearly double the visits in 2019-2020. Pack Provisions exists through the generous support of the University, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Desert Farming Initiative and donors, like you. Your gift to Pack Provisions helps guarantee hunger is not a barrier to student success.
