The Salvation Army’s central Arkansas food pantries fill over 2,000 food basket orders each year. Much of our food is provided by partner agencies like Arkansas Rice Depot and Arkansas Food Bank. However, we are only able to order from each of these agencies once per month, and there are often periods where our food supplies run short.
During these periods, we can use your help. The following list includes the most-requested items from our food pantries:
- Canned meat
- Produce (Canned fruit & veggies)
- Milk (Boxed, non-refrigerated)
- Ready-to-eat meals (Mac & Cheese, tuna, Hamburger Helper, Tuna Helper, peanut butter, soups, raviolis, etc.)
- Diabetic specific meals
- Dried rice and beans
- Personal Hygiene Products
Purchase these items and drop them off at any of our food pantries during office hours.
Or you or your organization can host a food drive. Download our Food Drive Toolkit 2 to promote your food drive and call 501-374-9296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pick up.
