With over 77% of the Arkansas Foodbank’s agencies being faith-based, we know the faith community has a passion for serving others and providing for the hungry. In terms of contributions, volunteers, and partnering together to resource the many food pantries and feeding programs sponsored by our congregations, this alliance has been a key ingredient in our mission. Below you will find resources to give your congregation more opportunities to get involved and learn about the important work of the Arkansas Foodbank.
