Kroger trades $250,000 for naming rights to UNT's food pantry

Norah Shazad, a University of North Texas sophomore, is one of two student employees working at the newly renamed UNT Food Pantry.

She was present Thursday for the official announcement that Kroger would financially support the pantry for the next five years, which included money for both student workers’ pay.

The modest ceremony outside the pantry on UNT’s campus saw remarks from UNT, city of Denton and Kroger representatives.

The corporation’s $250,000 in funding earned it naming rights, which it used to rename the facility the UNT Food Pantry presented by Kroger.

Money will also be used to guarantee pantry shelves remain stocked. The pantry has served more than 10,000 since it opened in 2015, more than 1,100 of whom were served this semester alone, according to UNT’s website.
