On Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 10 AM, The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas will host a ribbon-cutting for its new Client-Choice Food Pantry located in Fayetteville, AR. This new style of pantry will begin serving clients on June 1, 2018 as part of a summer initiative in partnership with Fayetteville Public Schools.
All are invited to attend the ribbon cutting as we celebrate this new opportunity.
This pilot program will allow families to select breakfast and lunch items to help feed kids during the summer months. For 11 weeks, FPS families, who signed up through the school district, who qualify for free and reduced lunches are invited to “shop” the pantry every Friday at no cost. The Salvation Army Client-Choice Food Pantry will be open Friday, June 1 through August 10 from 9 AM – 12 PM and 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Volunteers and staff will help in the shopping experience. Learn more about our pantry and find out how you can help.
The opening of this pantry has included a complete remodel of our warehouse space, the installation and addition of refrigeration coolers and shelving, plus increased food supplies. With support from the Walmart Foundation, the NWA Food Bank, The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, Fayetteville Public Schools, and many volunteers, we have designed a program that will help meet the needs of hungry families in our community. Additionally, this pantry will provide for clients throughout the week by appointment. The pantry will be housed in our Activity Center building located at 219 W 15th street, Fayetteville, AR.
