Our Mission

The mission of UNO’s Maverick Food Pantry is to contribute to UNO’s culture of caring by providing food to those in immediate need and connecting them with resources in the greater Omaha area for long-term support.  The pantry collaborates with services and departments across campus to support the UNO Community’s growth in all 8 Dimensions of Wellness.  We are dedicated to eliminating hunger in the UNO community and increasing awareness of food insecurity and nutrition.
