The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas is one of the organizations that has received a grant from the Michael J. Cleary Fund, held with the Twin Lakes Community Foundation out of Mountain Home.

The Cleary Fund was established to provide assistance to those in need in the Twin Lakes Area.

The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas helps many organizations in the region keep their Food Pantries Stock and teams up with Ozark Mountain Media Group in October for the Annual Fall Food Drive.

The Grant for the Food Bank was for $1000.

The two other organizations that received grants from the Cleary Fund this year are the Backpack Programs at Flippin and Yellville-Summit Public Schools.
