It is estimated that 22.5 percent of households in Arkansas are food insecure, according to Feeding America in The Impact of Coronavirus on Food Insecurity. This insecurity is exactly why The Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance is committed to providing programs, food resources, education and advocacy to reduce hunger in Arkansas with the help of Feeding America food bank members, hunger relief agencies, volunteers and corporate partners.
On June 16, community ambassadors Sharon and Carl Vogelpohl will host Serving Up Solutions, the annual fundraising event that supports the Alliance and its mission of eliminating food insecurity in Arkansas. Serving Up Solutions funds grants to hunger relief organizations in the home districts of legislators who participate in the event. According to Kristen Nicholson, marketing chair of the event, members of the Arkansas Legislative Hunger Caucus will once again don their special aprons and serve a delicious four-course dinner to donors, hunger advocates and guests.
As the only statewide hunger advocacy organization in Arkansas, the Alliance has several national affiliations as well as a network of constituents – business leaders, public officials, nonprofit organizations and concerned citizens – all with a finite focus on eliminating food insecurity in Arkansas. Through these strategic partnerships, the Alliance effectively reduces hunger and improves access to nutritious food.
“Giving back to our community is so vital,” said Sharon. “By investing our efforts in hunger advocacy, we hope we can effectively reduce food insecurity in the state of Arkansas. We are honored and grateful to be a part of this crucial fundraising event.”
