A Cup of Love Eureka Springs

“We are so excited to be serving our community in this way, fighting hunger. This has always been part of our dreams and through your help we are seeing it happen. So many more people being helped by having food available with the food pantry and also through the week.
 We serve soup Monday -Friday and also after service on Sundays, there has been more people than normal coming during the week and we calculate 106 crockpots served this month and that is about 20 servings per crockpot so that gives us a total of 2,120 cups of soup served this last month.
Thank you for all you do for our community."

Central Junior High School 
Springdale

“As a school, we address the needs of the whole child. Behind every face that we see at school is another chapter of life and needs. Over the past month, we have been able to be a blessing 
to many families. The level of thanks and appreciation expressed by the families is breathtaking. Many families want to know how they can "repay" the school or help us. This opens the door perfectly to making sure that their student is working hard 
in school, coming each day, and attending tutoring, if needed.
 
The NWA Food Bank allows us to have a strong relationship 
with families who may not have time to be active in our school. The result of this partnership are students who are connected 
to education and who receive sufficient academic supports”.
