What We Do

Food Bank in Northwest Arkansas
serving from Fayetteville, AR 

The NWA Food Bank is one of six Feeding America Food Banks in Arkansas.  It is our desire 
for healthy food to reach the kitchen tables of our neighbors as quickly as possible. 
We are encouraged by the numbers which reflect this effort. 

The NWA Food Bank currently has about 160 partner agencies ranging from food pantries, 
soup kitchens, shelters, and many more. In 2016 we distributed 
over 11.4 million pounds of food to these partners.  

The Food Bank works to distribute food to those who are food insecure in our community while forming strong relationships with business, non profit organizations, and others in the community who share the passion to end hunger in Northwest Arkansas.
