In our Agency Section you will find the tools necessary to join the Arkansas Foodbank as a partner agency and to help manage and run your agency.
Applying for Membership:
Arkansas Foodbank member agencies are on-the-ground food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters that provide direct services in their communities. The Foodbank has 300 member agencies in our 33-county service area. Several factors are taken into consideration when selecting organizations for membership, including existing food pantries in the area, proximity of the food pantries to each other, proposed days and hours of distribution, and whether the organization will provide a service that is not being provided in that area. We strongly discourage duplicated efforts, so we suggest using our Agency Locator Tool to determine if current Arkansas Foodbank members already serve your area. If you feel that there are no agencies serving your community and you would like to open a pantry, please review criteria for membership (link below) to ensure eligibility. If your organization is eligible, complete the Membership Application Packet and mail it to the Arkansas Foodbank; Attention: Connie Bledsoe; 4301 West 65th Street; Little Rock, AR 72209.
