Food and grocery donations from industry partners help Arkansas Foodbank reach more people facing hunger. We receive food donations from national and local retailers, food service providers, and food companies. Then we move donated food and groceries to member food pantries in communities where food is needed the most.

How does my company start donating food to Arkansas Foodbank?
Food Banks are the leaders in rescuing food surplus and providing it to member pantries and meal programs across the country. Donate your surplus food to the Arkansas Foodbank through the MealConnect app. It is quick, easy, and safe. Once you post your donation, we’ll connect you with a local member pantry or feeding program who will arrange a pickup.
