NEA Food Bank struggling to keep up

The Northeast Arkansas Food Bank is coping with lighter shelves in their efforts in the community.

Vicki Pillow, the director of the food bank, says the people that used to donate are coming by for completely different reasons than before. Pillow says, "Now in record numbers they're needing emergency food assistance in Northeast Arkansas and we used to have people who would go and buy an extra bag of groceries and bring them to the Food Bank and maybe they really can't afford to do that right now."

To donate to the NEA Food Bank, you can call 932-FOOD, or simply drop off your donations at the local food bank.
