Volunteers sort at the front of the Foodbank warehouse.

MISSION

The Arkansas Foodbank is the foundation in the fight against hunger. They find pathways to connect people, resources and food to reach those in need, providing dignity, hope and a brighter future for all Arkansans.

FUNDRAISERS AND EVENTS

Help the Arkansas Foodbank build a new volunteer center!

The Bridging Hope capital campaign will better equip the Foodbank to handle more nutritious food donations with the construction of a 22,000-SF processing and packaging center onto its current facility.

The new space will accommodate more than 4,000 volunteers a month, increasing productivity while keeping operational costs at a minimum. It will also help the Foodbank’s ability to reach families, children and seniors, while also better serving its partner agencies.
