30 Years of Hunger Relief

Feature A

All year long, the Arkansas Foodbank is reflecting on 30 years of filling tables and improving lives of Arkansans. We’ve seen many victories in the fight against hunger since 1984, thanks to our volunteers, donors and partner agencies. And while we stand on our history of achievement, it’s unfortunate that food insecurity is more prevalent than ever. The time is now for all Arkansans to realize that food insecurity is unacceptable and that everyone deserves a place at the table. Join us this year in our vision to create a community where no one has to go hungry. With your help, we can get more food to more families. We have to; the stakes are too high.

Our Warehouse

Arkansas Foodbank

The Foodbank moved into a brand new warehouse in 2011, funded in part by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The almost-73,000-square-foot facility features:

Steel King racking system and high-reaching fork lifts that allow five-high vertical storage for pallets and more than doubles our capacity

Agency Mart — A grocery shelf area in an air-conditioned space to serve hunger relief agencies 

Salvage room to inspect, cull and repack or re-label donated goods

Detention room to provide segregated storage of un-examined products for quality control

Cold storage and freezer 

Dock-height loading docks so forklifts can roll into the trailers for loading and unloading

Agency loading docks ergonomically designed for easier loading

State-of-the-art security system

Big Ass Fan™ for improved air circulation in the dry warehouse area

 

For every $1 donated, we can provide up to 4 meals. All donations are tax deductible.
