River Valley Regional Food Bank to Host Veterans Food Giveaway

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

The River Valley Regional Food Bank will host a special Thanksgiving food giveaway for veterans in our community.
The distribution will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or while supplies last, on Saturday, Nov. 20, at the River Valley Regional Food Bank location at 1617 South Zero Street in Fort Smith.

The special food giveaway is a way for the food bank to give back to the community’s veterans and was made possible thanks to a grant the food bank received through Feeding America.

Veterans must provide valid military identification or their DD214 form. Veterans are asked to park their vehicles, approach the registration tent prior to receiving food. The veteran must be present in order to receive food.

Each veteran will receive a box of food for a Thanksgiving meal, including a ham, milk and dog food.

A number of dignitaries will be on hand for the Saturday event, including U.S. Sen. John Boozman, Arkansas District 78 state Rep. Jay Richardson, Greenwood Mayor Doug Kinslow, Mulberry Mayor Gary Baxter, and others.

A special thanks to Combat Veterans of Arkansas, Chapter 7-3, who will distribute the food to the veterans. This is truly a veterans-helping veterans event.
