We welcome any UCA student or faculty to volunteer their time at the Food Pantry. As a volunteer, your job is to greet guests, check them in, help them in any way, and manage shelves and donations.

If you would like to volunteer, please follow these steps:

  • Go to Cub Connect or click here to visit Cub Connect.
  • Sign in using your UCA login credentials.
  • Select the “Service” tab.
  • Search for the “Bear Essentials Food Pantry” or click here.
  • Click the “Events” tab to see all upcoming opportunities.
  • Select your desired date to volunteer and register.
    • Before you can volunteer, you need to register for an orientation/training. Orientations can also be found on the event page.
