6th Annual Give Where You Live Food Drive

This year the drive is in October you can drop off non-perishable food items at participating Harps/Price Cutter Grocery stores or Armstrong Bank locations.

ARKANSAS, USA — Families and seniors are struggling more than ever to put food on the table due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Many kids don’t know when they’ll get their next meal. Many parents are stressed out not knowing how they’ll provide an adequate breakfast or dinner.

Let’s do something to help change that with the 6th Annual Give Where You Live Food Drive. This year the drive is in October you can purchase and/or donate non-perishable food items at participating Harps/Price Cutter Grocery stores or Armstrong Bank locations from Oct. 12th-25th. See the list below for participating locations.

New this year, you can pick up a pre-packaged donation bag near the checkout at Harps, pay for it and then drop it in the donation box.

100% of all the food collected will go to both the NWA Food Bank and River Valley Regional Food Bank to help those facing food insecurity.

Please join 5NEWS and let’s help fight hunger right here where we live!
