Food donations dwindle down in the spring and summer months leaving many families hungry.
Arvest Bank’s Million Meals Initiative is hoping to change that by rallying community members in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley to help provide at least one million meals to families in need.
It’s the volunteers and donations from our community that helps make such a big impact on non-profits like the Manna Center in Siloam Springs where every dollar donated can provide three meals.
“Million Meals has been very important to us. This last year the money and food that they gave us helped feed over 50,000,” Executive Director of Manna Center Mark Brooker says.
To donate, drop off non-perishable food items or make monetary donations at any of the Arvest locations.
Every dollar raised through Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals to those in need.
