Communities all across Arkansas are facing serious challenges. City services are being reduced in light of budget shortfalls, but demand for services continues increasing. Non-profit organizations that work to meet varying needs within our communities are finding fewer grant opportunities to help fund their work. The policy decisions that will shape the health and quality of life for generations are often being influence by narrow self interest.
There have been few times in our national history when the need for citizen involvement has been greater. Your enthusiasm, your time and your voice is needed if we are to bridge the gap between the cost of hunger relief and nutrition education programs and the benefits they provide.
