White County food banks and pantries.

Hundreds of families in White County turn to emergency food pantries on a monthly basis. Many of the clients of these non-profits are households with children or seniors. No matter the applicants age, race, or religion groceries or a hot meal may be served by a food bank in Searcy Arkansas.

The key objective of the food pantries is to help in an emergency. But they may also offer long term support as well. Some of the programs may be as follows.

  • Free groceries, both canned and perishable fruits or vegetables.
  • Soup kitchens in White County Arkansas may serve Thanksgiving or Holiday meals.
  • Centers may also offer personal hygiene items, household supplies, and similar items.
  • Low cost Meals on Wheels may help the disabled or elderly.

The long term support is mostly offered by case managers. They will help low income families apply for mostly state or federal aid such as SNAP food stamps or WIC vouchers. So several resources are available in White County for preventing hunger.
