FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas hosted a ribbon cutting for its newest food pantry.

The Client Choice Pantry is part of a partnership with the Fayetteville Public Schools. 

It allows parents to select breakfast and lunch items to help feed kids this summer. 

The Salvation Army needs volunteers to help shop with families on Fridays during the summer.  

“We know when we look at the number of kids on free and reduced lunches in Northwest Arkansas and Fayetteville in particular, there are a number of kids who are at risk in the summer of not having breakfast and lunch. So we want to be able to step in that gap and meet that need,” said Capt. Joshua Robinett with Salvation Army Northwest Arkansas.
