Readers Can Help Northwest Arkansas Food Bank Through Community Christmas Card Campaign

The Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission anticipates 1 million people living in Northwest Arkansas by 2045.

An estimated 145,000 of those residents, about 14.5%, will live with food insecurity, said Kent Eikenberry, president and chief executive officer of the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank of Springdale.

Eikenberry and the staff of the food bank are taking measures now to provide 20 million meals a year by 2045.

The plan includes a new 82,425-square-foot distribution center in Lowell.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as “a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.”

The Northwest Arkansas Food Bank provided 11.6 million meals in 2021 across Benton, Carroll, Madison and Washington counties, through partnering agencies, mobile pantries, emergency boxes and the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Readers of the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette can help.

In a decades-old holiday tradition, readers donate money to the newspaper’s Community Christmas Card, which the paper gives 100% of to a local charity. This year the money will go to the food bank. Donations are tax-deductible.

Eikenberry said the pantry will use the Christmas Card money to help build the distribution facility and add programming.

Readers contributed $21,000 for the 2021 Christmas Card, which also went to the food bank.

The Christmas Card money will be added to the capital campaign, he said.
