Arkansas Foodbank has numerous community events with our community partners.  AF partners with corporations, churches, organizations and individuals throughout our 33 county service area to help bring awareness to the hunger needs in our communities as well as raise funds to help feed the hungry.  Throughout the year these incredible sponsors host some really fun events to help us in the fight against hunger.

We are working on our 2021 partnership plans.  More info coming soon!




More info coming


The Summer Cereal Drive provides non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid-friendly for children and families in Central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day – breakfast.

There are two ways to participate in Summer Cereal Drive. You can come to our community sites and drop off your donations or you can create a team! Get your friends, family or coworkers together and form a team to compete in our drive. You can collect cereal, breakfast items and money during the month of June and then bring it on the designated drop off day to see which team brings in the most for each division!

KARK Channel 4 will host an all day telethon benefiting the Arkansas Foodbank. The telethon will last from 5 am – 11 pm and will be featured live on air during KARK’s morning, mid-day and evening newscasts. KARK generously runs promotional ads all week, highlighting our efforts to fight hunger in Arkansas.
