Food Bank of NEA receives large donation from church

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas received a special delivery on Wednesday morning.

Pastor Rickey Everett of the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in Blytheville delivered a check for $1,200.

Pastor Everett said this donation was made possible by a fundraiser called 'Soup-Per-Bowl.'

"Soup went together with super and so we just kind of put a twist on it from Super Bowl to 'Soup-Per-Bowl.' Every child should have, there should be soup per every child's bowl in Northeast Arkansas," said Pastor Everett.

He said they hope to make this an annual event.
