Advocate To Alleviate Hunger                                                                      

There are Hungry People in West Central Arkansas
And They Need Your Voice!

The mission of the River Valley Regional Food Bank is to alleviate hunger by providing food and support to community organizations that feed and assist the hungry. As the largest source of food for hunger-relief agencies in West Central Arkansas, the River Valley Regional Food Bank is positioned to engage public officials and citizens alike in fighting hunger. We can work together to make a significant impact in the lives of those who find themselves food insecure.

Would you be willing to write a letter, send an email, make a phone call or attend an event to help impact legislation that alleviates hunger? Tell us you’re ready to join the RVRFB Advocacy Network and we’ll keep you informed.
