Washington County Arkansas food pantries.

Struggling families in Washington County may receive help from a pantry. While the majority of the food banks are located in Springdale Arkansas, the centers will support people across the region and some locations are in different towns as well.

Thousands of families turn to the pantries every year, and many of them for the first time. The centers, most of which are not for profits or are based in churches, offer help to senior citizens, children, the unemployed, and anyone that needs help. A wide range of resources may be offered and hundreds of boxes of food and bags of groceries are served each month. Some sites have other basic needs as well, as indicated below.
