BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Blue and You Foundation donates 10-thousand dollars to the Loaves and Fishes Food Bank in Berryville recently.
A representative with Blue Cross Blue Shield, the foundation’s parent company, Scott Cane says this donation is a part of the not-for-profit’s mission to give Arkansas a better chance at a healthy life:
Loaves and Fishes Board Member Dale Hunter says not only is the food bank open for the community on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but the organization has the Hungry Kids Program.
It was organized to address the growing number of kids who are hungry at home by giving them a backpack filled with food for the weekend.
Loaves and Fishes report for 2017 reports that volunteers distributed more than 268-thousand pounds of food to people who need it in Carroll County.
