Delta Dental of Arkansas, in partnership with the Community Dental Clinic and the River Valley Regional Food Bank (RVRFB), will host a community food giveaway on Friday (August 21, 2020) at the food bank offices at 1617 South Zero Street in Fort Smith.
During the giveaway, each vehicle will receive two donation boxes (totaling 70 pounds). The boxes contain a variety of nutritious shelf-stable foods. The event is available to anyone in need — there are no requirements or restrictions to receive food. The distribution will begin at 8:30 a.m. and food will be dispersed while supplies last.
The distribution will be handled in a drive-thru manner. The public is asked to enter through the front entrance of the food bank, on Zero Street, and line up nearest to KFC. Food will be received at the front doors of the food bank. The public is asked to stay inside their vehicle, pop their trunk, keep windows rolled up (no smoking, please) and have enough space in the back of their vehicle for their donation, as we WILL NOT be able to place items inside of any vehicles.
This distribution is made possible thanks to a grant from Delta Dental of Arkansas.
Also Friday, the RVRFB is proud and honored to welcome Feeding America Chief Executive Officer Claire Babineaux-Fontenot to Fort Smith, as she tours the food bank facilities and meets with our staff.
