This year’s new initiative -- Take A Bite Out of Hunger -- is just one way for individuals and families to get involved in September’s Hunger Action Month by dining out at one of 21 restaurants in the area. Participating restaurants will donate a percentage of their proceeds to the Food Bank for a particular day, said Travis Sorensen, development coordinator. Diners are asked to let the wait staff at the restaurant know they are there for the Food Bank’s Take a Bite Out of Hunger campaign.

On Sept. 14 Food Bank board members and staff will be working at the Brick Street Brews, Rogers, as guest bartenders with a portion of the proceeds going to the Food Bank. “We want to provide a simple way for anyone to get engaged in the fight to combat hunger,” Mike Williams, director of development, said about the month-long event.

No single person or single agency can fight hunger alone. We need everyone in the community to step up and play a role to help fight hunger in Northwest Arkansas. Hunger Action Month is an effort to inform our community about the issue of food insecurity and provide a simple way to get involved in the fight against hunger.
- Mike Williams, director of development at the Food Bank

The
Mission

The Northwest Arkansas Food Bank is joining forces with Feeding America, a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs, in an effort to raise awareness about hunger. September has been designated as Hunger Action Month to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 42 million Americans, including 13 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA. In Northwest Arkansas, there are more than 70,000 who are food insecure.

No One Should Go Hungry.

In Northwest Arkansas over 70,000 men, women, senior citizens and children face hunger every day. The number of hungry people has increased in the past years, but the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank continues to fight for everyone to have access to nutritious food to eat.
