Over 65k of our NWA neighbors face hunger every day.
1 out of every 5 children in our region are food insecure.
With this number increasing every year, the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank continues to fight for everyone to have access to nutritious food to eat.

September is Hunger Action Month and in partnership with local events and organizations, our friends at NWA Daily will donate $1 for every new subscriber gained in September.

Every dollar raised helps provide at least 10 meals to children and families in the region we call home.
