JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-    Representatives with the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas say the need is up and the donations are down.

Christie Jordan with the food bank says over the past 6 months they've taken on 20 additional food pantries. Now more than ever, Jordan says they need these shelves full of food. "We were already struggling to meet the demands of our partner agencies.  But by adding more partner agencies that increases the demand for the food supply that we have," she said.

Jordan adds that over 5,000 people visit a food pantry, soup kitchen, or shelter in Northeast Arkansas every week.
   
The food bank is in desperate need of canned goods and fresh produce.
