Volunteers during December 2022 Staff Week.

Did you know that students at the Volunteer Action Center at the U of A have operated an on-campus food pantry for over 11 years? Over the last months, the Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry has served over approximately 1,200 household members monthly. Please consider joining Full Circle Food Pantry to help fill orders as students return to campus.  

Full Circle Food Pantry is led by nine student leaders and over 60 volunteers a semester. We are looking for extra hands during the weeks of Jan. 9 and Jan. 17 to help as students transition back to Fayetteville and full-time volunteers begin their semester-long commitment. Those interested in volunteering for the entirity of the semester, please email pantry3@uark.edu or visit our HogSync site. 

Please feel free to sign up on your own or encourage others in your department to sign up together to cover a whole shift! This is a great way to give back to the Razorback community and learn more about a campus resource providing food and more to any individual associated with the U of A. Volunteers will help fill orders, greet clients and more.  

First time volunteering with Full Circle? We will provide you with a detailed PowerPoint with everything you need to know prior to your shift and do in-person training upon arrival.
