JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A Northeast Arkansas organization needs help filling the food bank for the upcoming holidays.

On Friday, Nov. 18, from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Kroger Marketplace the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas needs help raising 350,000 meals.

Nobody should ever have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, and with cost increases, this holiday season will be hard on many.

Recent increases in food and fuel costs have severely impacted so many Northeast Arkansans,” said the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas. “We are asking you to help us Fill the Food Bank for the holidays so that no one goes without.”

Here are ways you can help:

  • Donate unexpired, nonperishable food at any Fill the Food Bank locations. All donations stay local.
  • You can donate by clicking here or texting NEAFOOD to 44321. Every dollar donated can help provide 3.5 meals.
  • Volunteer!

Canned items such as fruits, vegetables, soups, and meats will be accepted. You can also donate peanut butter, mac and cheese, rice, and other items. All donations must be in date, non-perishable, and cannot be in glass containers.
