University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College is dedicated to the success of our students as well as the faculty and staff who serve those students. As a service organization within UA-PTC, the food pantry seeks to promote the success of the UA-PTC family by focusing on the whole person. Because healthy living makes for healthy learning, the food pantry addresses the issue of hunger in the UA-PTC community. Serving the basic needs of the student outside the classroom will contribute greatly to success inside the classroom. If faculty or staff need help, assisting with their basic needs will allow them to better serve our students.
The food pantry will function in a way that promotes dignity and allows confidentiality for our patrons. Most importantly, we will strive to teach the entire UA-PTC community to be involved by displaying understanding, compassion and respect. The food pantry will operate on the premise that those who use our services are our friends, our colleagues, our students…our family.
