The Volunteer Action Center at the University of Arkansas established the Full Circle Campus Food Pantry in February 2011. The pantry is a student-run emergency food assistance program that distributes food and personal products to all members of the University of Arkansas community.
Each week, student volunteers take food requests, fill bags, and serve more than 200 students, staff and their families. In addition, student volunteers fundraise, take donations and meet with funders on an ongoing basis. This year alone, they have received more than $50,000 and more than 37,000 pounds of food for the pantry.
