Commodity Distribution Program

The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas conducts 4 to 5 commodity food distributions annually at 20 different sites in 11 counties. Key Food Bank staff, with the help of several local volunteers, set up a one-day food pantry at advertised locations throughout the year. Families or individuals are given this food free of charge, and eligibility is based on the number of people in the household and the household’s combined monthly income. To verify income eligibility contact our USDA coordinator Keith Livesay at klivesay@foodbankofnea.org at 870-932-3663
