Who Is NWA Hunger Relief:
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 through our Agency Support Division who directly touch the lives of their clients, advocating programs and policies for hunger relief, and educating people on nutrition and other social issues.
Our partner agencies receive products from our networking sources on an available basis. There is no charge for items received unlike traditional food banks. Food banks charge by the case or per pound which covers their operational costs ie: staff, facility, insurance, transportation costs etc. We keep our overhead low, are staffed only by volunteers and rely upon donations to cover our transportation costs. Once a product is received by Agency Support we immediately provide it to our partner agencies without warehousing the items.
The many areas of hunger:
Hunger for food, Spiritual Hunger, Hunger for a better place to live, a better career or just a job, hunger for a better education, a better family life, and the list goes on.
