Arkansas Rice Depot

about

Food For Kids is a simple program. The Arkansas Rice Depot provides new backpacks and "kid-friendly" ready-to-eat food to participating schools. Through a principal-appointed program coordinator, the food is distributed to students based on need. Some students are simply provided a high-energy snack at school. Many others are provided with a backpack at the end of the day that is filled with nutritious foods that children can prepare themselves.During the 2006-07 school year, Food For Kids assisted more than 18,000 hungry children in 502 schools across the state with backpacks filled with food, school supplies, personal care products and other items.The Arkansas Rice Depot developed the Food for Seniors program to address a gap in services for homebound senior citizens in Pulaski County. Through your continued donations, our goal for 2007-08 is to expand this service so that we may serve seniors in other Arkansas counties.
