FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Fayetteville Roots Festival is partnering with local businesses to launch a free meals initiative to help musicians in need.
Ozark Beer Company, Pack Shack, and Tyson Foods are joining the cause and helping provide free quick-cook meals to musicians affected by COVID-19 through things such as cancellations and lost income.
The initiative begins Thursday, April 2nd at Roots HQ located at 1 E Mountain St, Fayetteville, AR 72701. Musicians can curbside pick up a meal from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, also at the HQ.
For those who wish to help this cause, Roots HQ specified a few useful ways including:
- Share the word with a musician in need.
- Donate your time packing dry meals via @thepackshacknwa
- Donate to Roots via Venmo (@fayettevillerootsfestival) or by contacting email@example.com
