Welcome to the Arkansas Foodbank’s new website!
For over 30 years, The Arkansas Foodbank has been the cornerstone of hunger relief in our state. Our new website is designed to be a better tool in the work to end hunger. Please take a look at our website to learn more about the work we do and how you can help those in need. Join us as we seek to help Arkansans suffering from hunger.
The site is broken down into four areas
I Need Food – The Arkansas Foodbank partners with over 300 member agencies to provide assistance to those in need. If you need more information on how to receive food assistance from the Arkansas Foodbank’s 300 member agencies, please see the “I Need Food” area of the website to find a member agency near you.
Member Agencies – Arkansas Foodbank member agencies are on-the-ground food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters that provide direct services in their communities. We also partner with schools, college campuses, afterschool programs, and senior centers. This area of the website provides detailed information for member agencies from how to place an order to training and meetings. If you would like to become a member agency or need more information on children or senior services, take a look at this area of the website.
Help Fight Hunger – Arkansas ranks as one of the highest in the nation for food insecurity. From packaging food to monetary donations, your time and support help us fight hunger in Arkansas.
Over 280,000 people receive food from the Arkansas Foodbank each year. Last year, we distributed over 22 million pounds of food to those in need. We can’t serve those suffering from hunger without your help!
