Did you know, 92,000 people in NWA go to bed hungry (Arkansas hunger relief survey). Benton County ranks 2nd in the state for people living in poverty. One year ago, the NWACC food Pantry was established in order to help students and employees at NWACC, who are in need. The NWACC Food Pantry has operated successfully on donations from generous employees and students. The NWACC Student Ambassadors are hosting a fun and creative way to help stock the NWACC Food Pantry. We call this event We Can Box it Together. This will be a food sculpture competition between NWACC departments, Student Clubs, Divisions, basically any NWACC group that wants to participate. We hope you will form a team and help us fight hunger. The sculpture contest will take place October 5 and 6. We wanted to get the word out early so everyone would have time to form teams and collect food donations. Because the pantry has an overabundance of canned corn, canned green beans, and canned beans, we are asking that donations be limited to other non-perishable items. These can be boxed, canned, or bagged. For more information on donating, or participating, please contact Becky Hudson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
