Arkansas Foodbank Announces Summer Feeding Sites

 

Each summer, the Arkansas Foodbank hosts Summer Feeding Sites as part of the U.S. Department of  Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. The program is designed to replace free- and reduced-price meals that the children would normally get at school after school has dismissed for the summer.

These hot, grab-and-go meals will be provided to all children without charge and the same meals will be served to all children 18 years of age and under, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Parents and/or guardians may pick up the meals for the child with a waiver on file.

Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows:
