Healthy Active Arkansas continues to work with state and local governments, community leaders, our partners and others to provide access to foods for all Arkansans during this public health crisis.

Our partners and stakeholders have created a COVID-19 Food Access map to provide information on locations for food pantries and school and community meals throughout the state of Arkansas.

You can access the map here: Arkansas COVID-19 Food Access Map

The verification team is working diligently to update the school meals tab and now we have around 1500 data points now of places where Arkansans can find food! Also, we are excited to have received additional data from DHS on feeding sites, updates on farmers’ markets from UAEX, and locations for the Double Up Food Bucks locations!

The No Kid Hungry texting line is live! Individuals can text the word FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877 to receive information on the closest meal sites.
