Yellow Rocket Concepts – through its nine restaurant locations, restaurant websites and social media platforms – is soliciting support for the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance. This dollar-for-dollar-match fundraising campaign helps feed our hungry neighbors and the need has only escalated during the pandemic.
WHY ARKANSAS HUNGER RELIEF ALLIANCE?
Arkansas Hunger Alliance is the only statewide hunger relief agency. Through strategic partnerships with six regional Feeding America foodbanks, school districts, corporations and state/municipal organizations – the alliance approaches approach hunger relief in a comprehensive way: through the emergency food network, SNAP and educational programs like Cooking Matters.
COOKING MATTERS BECAUSE…
This series of courses teaches people about healthy food choices and how to cook healthy food on a budget. Traditionally, curriculum includes cooking classes and grocery store tour. In response to CDC/ COVID-19 precautions, the Cooking Matters team swiftly adapted to online programming and connected with hundreds of Arkansans for virtual courses about food waste, encouraging kids to eat their fruits + veggies, among other topics.
HOW TO HELP
Every dollar donated through the campaign’s official fundraising links will be matched by YRC up to $25,000 – a total of $50,000 once matched. Yellow Rocket Concepts operates Big Orange, Lost Forty Brewing, Local Lime, Heights Taco & Tamale and ZaZa. An initial donation of $10,000 provided immediate + essential food and supplies for more than 150 Arkansas households.
