Over the last few weeks, lives of countless Arkansans have been affected by COVID-19. Businesses have closed their doors, thousands have lost their jobs and their income, and schools have closed leaving children without access to breakfast and lunch they desperately need. Communities across the state have seen a drastic shift in the demand for resources, with one of the most critical being food. All of the Foodbanks across Arkansas are meeting increased needs of today while preparing for continued challenges in the weeks and months to come to ensure those affected have access to food. Support received from “And the Beat Goes On” will be allocated to all six Foodbanks across the state as well as the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance to assist with their COVID-19 response ensuring Arkansans do not go hungry during this critical time.

There are six food banks in Arkansas who provide food to all of our 75 counties. These food banks serve as distribution sites for millions of pounds of food and other relief items that go out into the regions they serve each year. These millions of pounds of food are distributed to individuals and families in need by local food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other non-profit organizations that feed the hungry. To learn more about the work happening in your community just hover over your county on the map and it will link you to the food bank that serves your area.
