Programs

How are we Creating Communities without Hunger?

The Food Bank is a non-profit hunger relief organization that collects, catalogs, warehouses, and distributes food and other grocery products through independent agencies such as: community food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, children's weekend meal programs and other special programs. In addition to the agencies we serve, we also have several programs of the Food Bank that are designed to strengthen our mission of "Building Bridges from Hunger to Hope."

Our Children's Weekend Meals Program provides hungry children with essential food for the weekends. The program is designed to be discreet, nutritious, and our backpacks are filled with items that are easily prepared by the children.

USDA Commodity Direct Distribution

The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas distributes USDA Commodities directly to its participating agencies. Our agencies benefit from having the USDA Commodities delivered directly to the agency site as opposed to having to come to the Food Bank for pick up.

Norfork Community Care Program

The Norfork Community Care Program's food pantry, thrift store, and Heirloom Seed Shop are located on the campus of the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas. The Heirloom Seed Shop supports the BIG SEED PROJECT: a growing program that encourages self-reliance and food sustainability. Click on the Seed Shop Catalog page to place your order today.
