LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Arkansas Food Bank offers a great shop for buying your holiday gifts.

“We have rice mixes, chili mixes, bean mixes,” says Sherri Jones, with the Food Bank. “Everything in our gift shop is Arkansas made or Arkansas grown.”

“So it’s not only great for those in need, but we are also supporting our local farmers as well,” she continues.

Every dollar you spend at the Food Bank gift shop allows up to five meals to be donated to Arkansans in need. 

“So with just the purchase of a bag of rice for 5 dollars or a chili mix for 6 dollars, it makes a huge impact on the lives of Arkansans that may not know where their next meal is coming from,” adds Jones.
