Insufficient Food for the Summer

July 17, 2017

The truth is, we need you. And that is not something we say lightly.

Each year, we give out over 90,000 meals in this community to men, women, and children in need. Some of those meals are hot meals at our shelter, others food bags, and still others are special meals at Thanksgiving or Christmas. We serve meals 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

But right now, our food pantry is incredibly low. While many think to give food around the holiday season, summer often goes forgotten.

And yet, children are out of school resulting in extra mouths to feed. Families are in transition as they move to a new area to start over. And the heat is bringing more and more homeless to our doors.

So what can you do?

Buy an extra case of peanut butter or cereal when you go to the store and drop it off.

Run a food drive with your church, social group, child’s sports team or workplace. We even have a toolkit to help you through the entire process.

Donate money designated for our food pantry.

What do we need most?

  • peanut butter
  • beans
  • canned meat
  • baby food
  • boxed foods (mac & cheese, hamburger helper, etc.)
  • diapers
  • green beans

Where can you drop off?

  • FAYETTEVILLE: 219 W 15th St.  |  Mon-Fri 8 to 7 (or by appt. 479-521-2151)
  • SPRINGDALE: 329 Holcomb St.  |  Mon-Sat 10 AM – 7 PM
  • BENTONVILLE: 3305 SW I St.  |  Mon-Fri 9 AM – 8 PM (or by appt. 479-271-9545)

Thanks for your help! Let’s #feedNWA together.
