Thank you to the Walmart Foundation for contributing $18,900 to the Food Bank in support of the Retail Store Donation Program!  Through this program, the Food Bank and its network of partner agencies receive food that is near the expiration date or because the boxes or cans are dented.  Instead of throwing out this safe, nutritious food, it is given to families at-risk of hunger in Northeast Arkansas.

The grant allows the Food Bank to promote the program and educate store employees on food safety and donation guidelines.

When disaster strikes, like the recent flooding, it takes a whole community working together to rebuild. The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas will accept donations of food, cleaning supplies, and money to assist families during the recovery process. We will distribute these donations through partner agencies located in the communities affected by flooding. $1 donated = 4 meals.

 

“Cooking Matters at the Store” program teaches nutrition education on a budget to families at risk of hunger by facilitating 20-minute grocery store tours. Join us at Cooking Matters at the Store on Thursday, March 10, 10am-2pm at the Mad Butcher located at 901 N. Edmonds in McCrory, AR and Friday, March 11, 10am-2pm at Harps located at 301 N. Missouri Ave in Corning, AR.
