2017 WISH LIST

2017 WISH LIST - Food donations needed!
Kroger Community Rewards - Thank you to those families who make their shopping dollars do good for those less fortunate, and thank you to Kroger for offering such a community minded program.
Generous donor offers to match $20,000!
When Feed Arkansas Kids got started we served only to children who qualified as homeless. These are children who lived with an extended family member or lived in a hotel, shelter or on the street. As the need has grown, we now also serve children who live in food insecure environments (poverty).
In 2007, Feed Arkansas Kids (formerly Backpacks 4 Kids) began serving 60 children. Now in 2017, it has grown to 1400 children.
Feed Arkansas Kids Chairman Mark Evans has a special message for you. Welcome to our website! We hope you will use this website as a resource to learn more about this wonderful organization and the positive impact it is having on Central Arkansas’ homeless, hungry and poverty-stricken children.

Feed Arkansas Kids is getting ready for the 2016-2017 school year. To start things off, an anonymous donor has offered a matching donation up to $20,000! Please consider making a donation today to help Feed Arkansas Kids reach this goal and ensure that the children of Central Arkansas have food to eat on the weekends.

Dear Neighbor,

Our organization had a record year of support, funding and most importantly: we are feeding more of our community's hungry children than ever before .

But as 2012 comes to a close we are still short of our fundraising goal, so please consider making a year-end gift to Feed Arkansas Kids. There are still too many children in Central Arkansas who need our help. We are feeding over 800 children every weekend but we have not reached our goal of feeding 2,000 children per weekend by the end of the school year.

Join me in my resolution to end hunger for our community's poverty-stricken children. Please make a generous gift before midnight and take advantage of the tax benefits of giving while helping feed children.

Thank you so much for your continued interest in Feed Arkansas Kids and happy New Year!
