About Feed Arkansas Kids

Feed Arkansas Kids is a ministry through the Church at Rock Creek that provides weekend meals for homeless and food insecure children in Central Arkansas. It is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The concept is simple: children at risk of weekend hunger receive a meal pack with enough shelf-stable food to easily assemble into 7 healthy meals and snacks. Arkansas ranks #5 in the nation for child hunger. Feed Arkansas Kids' philosophy is simply to end child hunger by partnering with the schools in our communities to discreetly distribute food each week.
The food is purchased with donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations, and ordered through the Arkansas Foodbank Network.  Feed Arkansas Kids also accepts food donations directly from individuals and businesses.
We currently provide weekend meals to 1,600 students in over 50 schools in Central Arkansas.
Our program works with school districts in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Pulaski County, Sheridan, and Bryant, as well as the AR School for the Deaf, the Francis Allen School, and eStem Schools.
