Arkansas Organizations Combine to Serve Food-Insecure Individuals

Combined, the Arkansas Foodbank and Arkansas Rice Depot had more than 60 years of experience fighting hunger in Arkansas, one of the most food-insecure states in the nation. Realizing that they had compatible missions, complementary programs and unique strengths, a merger of the two organizations was a natural next step. The combined nonprofit has realized efficiencies in operations and allowed assets to be redeployed to better serve food-insecure individuals, children and families in Arkansas. The Lodestar Foundation provided partial funding for a consultant to help with the design and delivery of a comprehensive and strategic integration plan.
