The Arkansas Foodbank has two annual events: Empty Bowls, our signature fundraiser at the Robinson Center in May, and Harvest Night, a family-friendly event in September that’s hosted in our warehouse, as well as events with our community partners throughout the year.

Community Events Opportunities:

  • Mobile Distributions

  • Farmer’s Market
  • Food For Kids Pack-a-thon
  • Cinco de Heights
  • Gift From THE Heart Pop-Up Stores
  • KARK Telethon

Additional Information about signing up to be a volunteer:

Individual Volunteers: Every individual volunteer will need their own individual CERVIS profile page in order to sign up for service events and service projects. Please create your profile page with a personal email address which prevents the duplication of profile pages in CERVIS but also allows us to communicate with you as needed.

Group Volunteers: Group leaders can sign up a group of volunteers for their organization for service events. Group leaders will need leadership team access level before they can add volunteers to their groups in CERVIS. Please complete a volunteer group request form by clicking the link and it will submitted to the Volunteer Coordinator or Volunteer Engagement Manager to determine approval and leadership team access. You will receive an email with additional information after approval.

Volunteer Age Restrictions: Volunteers must be at least eight (8) years of age to work in our warehouse. Volunteers 8-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers 16-18 years old do not require an adult to accompany them to volunteer in our warehouse.
