Harvest Regional Food Bank has rescheduled its Mobile Distribution from Wednesday, Jan. 17, to Friday, Jan. 19th, from 9 to 11 a.m. or until all boxes have been distributed. The truck will be parked at the 102 E. Main St., Waldo, AR (Fire Department).

Recipients must come inside the fire station building to check-in. Once checked in, recipients will go back to their vehicle and proceed to line up along East Main St. & N Walnut St. then E Roselawn St. towards N Hickory St. The next Mobile Pantry will be on April 24, 2024.

Recipients must bring photo identification or proof of address to verify they are residents of Columbia County. Distribution is limited to one box per household and 2 households per vehicle.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

Last year, Harvest distributed 3.2M meals and served over 60,000 individuals in Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas. Both states consistently rank in the top 10 for the highest incidents of hunger. Nearly 20% of our local residents miss meals due to food insecurity, including 1 in 4 children. Harvest works to eliminate hunger through its Food Banking, Food Rescue, School Backpack and Mobile Pantry programs.
