Mission: The Arkansas Foodbank is a cornerstone of hunger relief that acquires and distributes, through local and national partnerships, large quantities of food and other resources to hungry people. The Arkansas Foodbank has been working since 1984 to eliminate hunger in Arkansas by providing nutritious food to those in need. In 2008, we distributed almost 11 million pounds: more than 9.2 million pounds of food to our more than 400 member agencies in 33 central and southern Arkansas counties and 1.6 million to other food banks in the state. That is about 55,000 pounds of food per day! Our network of member agencies includes food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers, and after-school programs. Ninety-five percent of everything the Arkansas Foodbank receives is allocated to programs, enabling our agencies to serve about 23,000 hungry Arkansans in any given week.

Geographic areas served: 33 counties in central and southern Arkansas
