Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry

The Program


The Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle campus food pantry was established in 2011 by students who became aware of their peers struggle with finding adequate nutrition. Our 9 member student board of directors strives to not only provide meals but provide balanced nutrition in a dignified, friendly environment to any UARK community member. Our shifts are run by student volunteers who commit two hours weekly under the supervision of a board member.


We are a student led emergency food assistance program that distributes a three day supply of food to all members of a household provided at least one person has a University of Arkansas ID number. We also distribute personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, and fresh produce when available. We also provide services in an effort to reach more clients with a long term solution to food insecurity such as helping clients apply for SNAP applications and find other local resources.
