Corn Crop For a Cause

    Local Farmer to Donate Corn to Food Bank

    Harvest Regional Food Bank needs volunteers to assist in its annual corn harvest, thanks to a generous two-acre donation of corn from a local farmer in Foreman, Arkansas. 30-40 individuals of all ages are welcome Wednesday & Thursday, July 1st & 2nd from 8:30am – 12:30pm to assist with gleaning and loading corn for distribution to 75+ food pantries across Harvest’s 10-county region. “Part of our role as a food bank for Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas is to provide nutritious foods to those who need it most,” says Camille Wrinkle, CEO/Executive Director.Partnering with local farmers allows us to deliver fresh fruits and vegetables directly to the children, families and seniors we serve.

    Volunteers will meet at the Hwy 41 rest stop in Foreman, AR at 8:00 each morning (at the Hwy 32 Intersection/ 278 AR-41 Foreman, AR 71836). If you aren’t able to meet at 8:00am, there will be signs directing volunteers to the corn field.For more information or to sign up to volunteer, call 870-774-1398 or email development@hrfb.org. Volunteers should dress for the occasion - light clothing, long socks and work gloves (recommended but not required).
