Food For Kids
Because it’s hard to be hungry for knowledge when you’re just plain hungry, Food For Kids exists to serve Arkansas students, grades K-12, who display educational, physical, or emotional problems at school due to hunger at home. Read more
Food For Seniors
No senior citizen should receive a life sentence of hunger. Our Food For Seniors program enables volunteers to deliver food and household items once a month to low-income, homebound seniors in Pulaski, Saline, Faulkner, and Garland Counties and other Central Arkansas communities. Read more
