Food Insecurity Statewide Community Service Project

Food insecurity in Arkansas is on the rise. We are trying to bring awareness to this issue and be an ally to those in need.

What are we doing to help?

Addressing food insecurity is our statewide project.  Members may volunteer at local food pantries, host food drives, and donate to local food pantries or food banks. 

What are our goals?

  • Provide one million meals by 2022. By focusing on food insecurity, we hope to make a difference by working together and lowering the number of people who do not have access to food.
  • Partner with state food banks and local food pantries. 

Pledge and donate to a food bank.
