Kicking Hunger to the Curb

Feed the Children

Northwest Arkansas is the first stop on a nationwide tour to help hunger-stricken communities in the wake of the pandemic. Tyson Foods, Feed the Children, and Americold are hosting an 'Alliance to Defeat Hunger' tour, which plans to bring 2 million meals to 10 communities across the U.S.

  • Feeding NWA: In Springdale yesterday, local partner Compassion NWA joined the fold to provide 25-pound boxes of food items and boxes of personal care and hygiene items.
  • More than a whistle stop: The tour will also set up pantries in local schools in each community. Springdale's own George Elementary School partnered with the tour to establish a pantry. Items in the pantries will be available throughout the school year.
