Lions Club discusses NEA Food Bank at monthly meeting

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The University Heights Lions Club held their monthly meeting Tuesday morning where they got an update on the new Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas.

Food Bank officials shared just how much need there is in not only Region 8, but across the state.

The event was a way for people to learn just what the Food Bank does for Region 8. "They have so much more capabilities as far as storing and as far as volunteers coming and helping out that's it just really important for them to let people know they have this capability now," said Ashley Henning.

The event coordinator for the club says meetings like this help with coordinating charitable events in the area, "It's important that all of us know the different agencies that help and support life Northeast Arkansas and Lions Club is always interested in what other agencies and groups are doing," said Norman Dickson.
