Full Circle Fast Bags!

Wow, what a wild ride this has been so far! The Full Circle Food Pantry team is determined and dedicated to troubleshooting, adapting, and thinking creatively to ensure they can continue to serve the University of Arkansas community with the safety of their students, staff, and clients top of mind. The staff members first want to sincerely thank everyone's patience and grace as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We are ALL in this together!

To stay up to date with pantry services, hours, and announcements as we adapt to the evolving environment, please follow our Facebook page at Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry.

Service Updates

Express delivery services have been suspended for the remainder of the semester due to campus closures.

The staff members are moving to exclusively utilizing pre-made Full Circle Fast Bags. Online orders and in-person walk up orders have been suspended. The pantry will be creating vegetarian bags starting next week to accommodate vegetarian clients.

Full Circle Fast Bag Distribution

For the next few weeks, the Full Circle Food Pantry will be staffed for Full Circle Fast Bag pick up Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. The pantry's Facebook page and website are the best ways to stay up to date with hours for pick up.

Clients will need to bring their UA or UAMS ID to pick up 1 bag for every 2 people in the household. The pantry will maintain the 6-foot standard of social distancing and take every safety precaution as they fill and distribute the bags.

The Ceramics Studio Outpost will remain available for Full Circle Fast Bag pick-up. This is located at 326 Eastern Avenue. The contact for The Outpost is Jeannie Hulen, jhulen@uark.edu. Outpost hours will be posted daily to their Facebook page.

If you have questions, concerns, or emergency need, you can contact pantry@uark.edu anytime or call 479-575-7693 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
