Since we were founded in 1984, accessing nutritious food for hungry Arkansans has become more challenging. Manufacturers and distributors have become increasingly efficient, resulting in less surplus food. And retailers, such as dollar stores and salvage centers, buy overages to which the Foodbank used to have access.
Often, the food that is available is not the nutritious food we want to make available to hungry Arkansans. This has led to a huge increase in the amount of food the Arkansas Foodbank Network has to purchase for its clients.
If you are a manufacturer or distributor interested in donating food to the Arkansas Foodbank Network, please contact T.J. ROMINE at (501) 565-8121, ext. 22.
Or, if you wish to start a FOOD DRIVE to collect donations of food for the Arkansas Foodbank, contact Erica McFadden (email: email@example.com
or phone: 501-565-8121). For resources, like a food drive kit and list of most-needed items, please click this link: FOOD DRIVES
