Food pantries desperately seeking donations

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) -

The Salvation Army is requesting help to fill their food pantries.

During the month of June, The Salvation Army saw a 32 percent increase in the number of families seeking assistance from its food pantries.

Currently, the North Little Rock and Benton locations don't have enough food to fill even a single order.

During the summer months, food pantries see an increase in need from families whose children are out of school. The Salvation Army needs the community's assistance to help these families.

The most requested items for donations are:
- canned meat
- produce (canned fruit and veggies)
- milk (boxed, non-refrigerated)
- ready-to-eat meals (mac & cheese, tuna, Hamburger Helper, Tuna Helper, peanut butter, soups, raviolis, etc.)
- diabetic specific meals
- dried rice and beans
- bread
- cereal
- diapers
- personal hygiene products

If you can help with any of these items, the following locations are accepting donations:

Little Rock: 1111 W. Markham
Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

North Little Rock: 1505 W. 18th St.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Benton: 129 N. Main St.
