Faulkner County food banks and pantries.

Free, emergency food boxes can be provided by pantries across Faulkner County. Not only may groceries be passed out to struggling as well as working poor families, but many of the charities also deliver hot meals to the homebound, staff help people apply for SNAP food stamps, and offer other support.

Most of the food banks only help a family once a month or quarter. They should not be relied upon for long term assistance. Instead a family in poverty can apply for WIC or SNAP food stamps, as those can provide longer term support. These government assistance are also available in Faulkner County.

Whether a resident needs diapers, a box of groceries, infant formula, Christmas or Thanksgiving meals or canned food, a pantry below may be able to help. Many programs are available to working poor families in the region.
