Welcome to our new 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.
Every weekend during the school year, we support children who receive school lunches during the week. We provide 7 meals to each child, starting on Friday night and ending Sunday evening, for just $6 per child per weekend. Our non-profit organization is the safety net these children need to get them through the week.
In 2007, Feed Arkansas Kids (formerly Backpacks 4 Kids) began serving 60 children. Now in 2012, we have grown to supporting over 500 children in 37 schools. As the need for our organization continues to grow, so too have our costs to operate this program. Since we anticipate much growth over the upcoming school year (our goal is 2,000 students), we want to offer our community leaders the opportunity to directly affect the lives of the children in our area through financial help.
I encourage you to look around first at our website, learn more about our program, including which schools we are supporting and then if you are able to, I urge you to make a donation of $6 or more today to this worthy cause.
Your $6 will make certain a child in a school near you has 7 meals for the upcoming weekend. It’s that simple and every dollar you donate is tax-deductible.
