Because of unique partnerships, the Arkansas Food Bank is able to stretch each dollar farther than most groups to maximize your donations. Each dollar you donate results in five meals. That means your $28,000 in donations will result in some 140,000 meals distributed by the food bank.
The Arkansas Food Bank serves about 280,000 each year. 30,000 people are served each week.
This year's telethon fell under our Victory Over Violence campaign. Hunger and poverty are root causes for why many turn to violent lifestyles.
As always, we thank you for your generous contributions!
