Turnip for Hunger 2019

November 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


We’re pleased to announce Turnip For Hunger will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019, from 9 am to 1 pm, at Western Hills Garden in Little Rock, AR. This is a day of great fun, food, games, and hard work. Volunteers gather in the field to help pick and load turnips for transport. All produce gleaned will go to Arkansas Foodbank to be distributed to over 400 pantries in their service network.

We recommend volunteers wear sturdy shoes, bring gloves, and we will provide the rest. You may preregister to volunteer below, or email Michelle Shope at mshope@arhungeralliance.org
