Hunger and homelessness is a growing problem in Arkansas. Fayetteville 7 Hill’s Homeless Center is trying to change that. 7 Hills partnered with Not Impossible Labs, and local Northwest Arkansas technology companies to make it possible for people to get a meal just by sending a quick text.
19% of Arkansans experience food insecurity, and that puts the Natural State above the national average. “It’s not just people who are literally homeless..it can be the kids your kids go to school with. It can be your neighbor. Food insecurity is a challenge for a lot of people in our community today,” said Solomon Burchfield with 7 Hills.
