As the tornado survivors in Arkansas begin to put their lives back together, we know there will be so many decisions to be made and obstacles to overcome. At the Arkansas Foodbank we want to take away one of the worries they may have in their day-to-day struggles. We will be supplying disaster food boxes to survivors in the damaged areas, consisting of easy to prepare, non-perishable items they can have on hand to eat as they are working in their communities and homes.
We recognize that many families will not have adequate refrigeration or cooking options for many weeks to come. If our past experiences hold true, many will even camp out in what used to be their front yards. Therefore, it will be critical to help them stay as close to home as possible and have as few distractions as possible. Providing disaster food boxes will help them have one less thing to worry about.
We would be honored if you would choose to help us collect food and/or funds to provide these boxes.
