UAMS NW Community Health and Research, with funding from the Walmart Foundation, is partnering with the Arkansas Community Foundation to support coordinated food insecurity response and relief in Northwest Arkansas (Benton, Carroll, Madison, and Washington counties) due to COVID-19 illness, job loss, school closures, and social distancing. In response to these challenges, UAMS is reaching out to community organizations to understand their current needs related to sustaining and growing food outreach programs during this time, collecting and disseminating information via a weekly newsletter, and providing financial resources where needed.

If you are in need of local resources, support, funding, or technical assistance to enhance your organization’s capacity to meet your clients’ food needs that have developed or worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please reach out to our team at communityhealth@uams.edu.
