Thank you for supporting the Pantry Bowl!

$199,289.08 raised

2,648 gifts

For the third straight year, the Pantry Bowl was an amazing success — thanks to you.

Congratulations to Feed the Pack, which received the most gifts, and thank you to everyone who participated. Whether you spread the word, learned more about food insecurity or made a gift to strengthen food pantry resources at NC State and Carolina, you made a difference for our communities. We really do all win when we work together to address a cause as important as food insecurity. 

We’re excited to share that NC State exceeded last year’s total number of monetary gifts (1,128), so Feed the Pack will receive an additional $15,000 from alumni TJ and Erin Trantham!
We hope you’ll continue to support Feed the Pack and Carolina Cupboard year-round, and share this work with your fellow alumni and friends.


The Pantry Bowl is an annual fundraising initiative that unites two passionate fan bases — the Wolfpack and the Tar Heels — to bring awareness to the issue of food insecurity, which affects as many as 1 in 5 people on college campuses. Gifts will support each university’s food pantry, Feed the Pack and Carolina Cupboard. Last year’s Pantry Bowl raised $148,099.93 from 2,235 gifts – nearly $60,000 and 1,000 gifts more than the competition’s first year!

Choose the button for the university food pantry you wish to support. You will be directed to the university’s standard giving form, and your gift will be processed like any other gift made to NC State or Carolina.

Yes. You will receive a receipt via email for tax purposes.

Thank you for your interest! While food and other items will not count for this competition, both pantries do accept these donations. Learn more at the following links:
