Thank you for your interest in the United Network for Collegiate Pantry Sharing (UNCPS) Remote Nutrition Service Program. Here are a few of the questions we often receive about our service. If your specific question is not answered here, please get in touch! Our contact information is at the bottom of the page.
How much does your service cost?
Our meals for restaurant pick-up and delivery orders are provided free of charge to enrolled students experiencing food insecurities at one of our participating colleges and universities. We are funded by individuals, foundations, corporations, and public funds so that we can deliver meals without any cost to recipients.
Who is eligible for United Network for Collegiate Pantry Sharing (UNCPS) meals?
To qualify for meal assistance, a student must satisfy all the following requirements:
* Based on funding sources, eligibility requirements are subject to change.
Can my family members receive meals too?
We understand that food insecurities and COVID-19 affects both you and your family. UNCPS can provide meals to families and anyone else in your household who has difficulty accessing healthy meals. The Client Services team determines eligibility on a case-by-case basis based on the generosity of "Gift Meals" for the enrolled student.
Restaurant pick-up and delivery orders to clients participating in our core program are made 7 days a week. Your exact delivery / pick-up times are determined by your address. If your assigned EAT LOCAL restaurant is closed, we will route you to a secondary restaurant if one is available in your area. All deliveries / pick-up will be established by the EAT LOCAL restaurant.
Delivery days may vary for clients receiving meals because an EAT LOCAL provider or funding provider has elected to discontinue contracting with UNCPS to provide meals for that person.
Some clients will only receive our services for a short time, and others may receive our service for a longer duration. You will receive meals if people continue donating. We are relying on the generosity of "Gift Meals".
