Pantry Protocol

At Feed the Pack, we maintain a set of community guidelines to provide accessible services to our Wolfpack community. Please see the infographic below for more information on what a visit to the pantry looks like!

Visiting Feed the Pack: Pantry Protocols and Rules

Feed the Pack is located at the Pack Essentials Hub in North Hall. To enter, scan your Wolfpack One Card.

If you arrive before operating hours begin, take a number outside of the pantry door to claim your spot in line.

Once you enter the pantry, approach the front desk where one of our volunteers will prompt you to swipe your ID Card.

Feed the Pack only allows one visit per week.
Please fill out our intake form prior to your 2nd  visit.

Once you have been cleared, you may take a basket and begin shopping. Please follow all posted item and category limits when shopping. These include limits on produce, dry, and cold goods.

After you have finished shopping, approach the counter and one of our volunteers will assist you in checking out.

Feed the Pack offers patrons a complementary bagging station once you have finished shopping.

To best accommodate patrons, Feed the Pack has a series of expectations for all visitors of the pantry:

  • Sometimes guests arrive at Feed the Pack before we open for the day. If patrons arrive 15 minutes prior to opening hours, they will receive a number that represents their position in line. These numbers are randomly distributed (i.e. showing up 30 minutes prior to opening does not mean you will be first in line). Once the pantry has opened, patrons will be allowed inside in the order of their assigned numbers.
  • The pantry space is limited to a total of 15 occupants at a time, including volunteers.
  • Feed the Pack is open to the NC State students, staff, and faculty. Scanning your own NC State ID card lets us know that you are affiliated with NC State.
  • Patrons are expected to adhere to the item limits posted in the pantry space. Item limits are also posted on/near food items on our shelves. Please note that Feed the Pack is primarily donation based, so our inventory will fluctuate.
  • Patrons are limited to 1 of every produce item that is offered in the pantry.
