Program areas at Arkansas Foodbank

Our food for families program focuses on connecting our partner agencies with local, state and national resources with food and funds to strengthen their programs, ultimately enabling them to better serve their community. To do this, we employ the following tactics: work to provide access to healthy and nutritious food to families; partner with nearly 320 agencies that include community pantries, soup kitchens and shelters across 33 counties; provide mini-grants to build agency capacity that can serve as food credits and/or purchase equipment; implement our local partner development initiative (lpdi), a program piece designed to involve local residents and resources to address hunger relief on a local community level; conduct Foodbank university training sessions to improve pantry services through an array of best practice topics; design and implement new program initiatives to tackle barriers to food security.

Our food for kids program focuses on effective, cost-efficient and replicable hunger relief programs to target children. As we researched the answers to our questions, four strategies emerged that clearly met the criteria. Backpack program: in 1994, the Arkansas rice depot launched the backpack program, sending hungry children home with backpacks filled with food every weekend. In 2017 the backpack program, served over 5,000 kids in 90 schools last year. School pantries: school pantries are readily accessible sources of food assistance for low income children aged 0-18 and their families. School pantries operate much like other food pantries, with the exception that the pantry only serves school children and their families. Sites are either located on a schools campus or close by, have set distribution schedules, and offer ongoing food assistance services. After school snack & meals programs: afterschool snack and meals programs operate in local nonprofit organizations and churches. ...

Usda commodities: local, state and national governments recognize the importance of providing adequate resources for citizens. Some government programs that help feed hungry people include: snap, wic, tefap commodities, school breakfast, school lunch, summer meals and after school meals. Locally, city and county governments provide support to soup kitchens and pantries and partner with local organizations to connect hungry people with resources. Collaborations between the public, private and non-profit sector are the most effective at addressing hunger. The emergency food assistance program(tefap) is an effective federal program that helps supplement the diets of low income americans, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance via food banks. The program was designed to help reduce federal food inventories and storage costs while assisting low income persons. Tefap is the backbone of the charitable food system - providing almost 20% of the food that was distributed through local hunger-relief agencies last ...
