RV Food Bank Preps for Increased Demand

The River Valley Food Bank has seen a 25% drop in demand for its services the last two months, but that could soon change.
More than 900 people in 8 river valley counties will no longer qualify for food-stamp benefits come April, so the food bank anticipates more people will be using its food pantries and other services.
According to the latest census figures, Arkansas is tied with Mississippi as the most food insecure state in the nation, with 19.2% of residents having an insufficient amount of food sometime in the last 12 months.
