While schools in Pulaski County are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Little Rock has joined with community partners to provide meals for students.  Volunteers are an integral part of the effort. 

If you would like to volunteer, please read the  information below and then SIGN UP HERE.

 1) Volunteers should be between 18 and 65 years old. 

2) While we need volunteers of all abilities, experience with restaurant food handling, Safe Serve certification, medical experience, or sterile techniques is preferred.

3) Volunteers who are sick, do not feel well, or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 should stay home. 

4) If you have been out of Arkansas within the last 14 days, please stay at home until the 14 days are up.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this difficult time

Impact the Rock

A Day of Unity and Service


These cleanup and beautification projects are a great way for individuals, families and organizations to get involved.  

On these projects we could use the help of businesses or groups with access to equipment such as mowers, bush hogs and weed eaters. 

For those who have created their own project, please report them here.
