NWA Hunger Relief, Inc. Is a 501 (c)(3) hunger relief organization that was formed to combat hunger and its ensuing social issues. The organization does so by supporting other agencies who directly touch the lives of their clients.
A food pantry is available on the last Saturday of each month. This is located at the Genesis Church Campus, 205 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Fayetteville, AR. Service starts at 11 AM to approximately 1 PM. This pantry is administered by NWA Hope Center which is a division of our organizaion. A meal is provided on this day as well. NWA Hope Center also offers emergency food service (ie: fire, disaster displacement, etc.). In addition to food items, gently used clothing is available at no cost to our clients.
Meal service is provided at the M&N Augustine Foundation on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 PM. The Foundation is located at 503 East 15th Street, Fayetteville. This program is open to anyone who is in need of a hot meal.
NWA Agency Support has donated several thousand pounds of food items to other pantries the NWA Area. In addition we have donated several cases of new books to One Community in Springdale, AR to be used in the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. The Washington County Juvenile Court has also been a recipient of books and stuffed animals as has various other child service agencies in the area.
New to our program is our railroad museum area. Located just south of Fayetteville this garden railroad is open to senior centers, schools, church groups or any organization and individuals by appointment on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. The museum is open late April through mid November. For additional information you may visit www.heather-ridge.com
The museum’s main objective is to accept donations of non perishable food and personal hygiene items for partner food pantries in the area. The museum also promotes the enjoyment of model railroading and railroad safety.
Through our networking resources we will touch the lives of many people in the NWA area. Please visit our support page and make a donation today. All funds directly impact lives in the NWA area. We are a 100% volunteer organization.
