University of Central Arkansas


Welcome, Bears!

Chapter Story - Swipe Out Hunger at University of Central Arkansas was founded in the Fall of 2016 with a mission of making meals more accessible to food insecure members of the UCA community. The program operates in strong partnership with Bear Essentials Food Pantry and Aramark. 

How it Works - UCA's chapter of Swipe Out Hunger hosts a free community dinner sponsored by Aramark on the first Wednesday of every month. The meals are served at Old Main 108 starting at 5pm.  These meals are organized and served by the Bear Essentials Pantry coordinator and student volunteers.
