Harvest Regional Food Bank serves more than 50,000 individuals in 10 counties each year through a network of over 100 partner agencies, pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens.  Arkansas and Texas consistently rank in the top 5 for the highest incidents of hunger. Nearly 20% of our local residents miss meals due to food insecurity including 1 in 4 children.  Harvest works to eliminate hunger through Food Banking, Food Rescue, the Backpack Program, and Mobile Pantry.
