UPDATE: Distribution Locations for Meals During COVID-19 School Closure (04-07-20)

In response to the COVID-19 school closures, the City of Little Rock and local organizations have implemented a plan to provide meals for students, many of whom regularly receive their only weekday meals at school.

Through Sunday, April 5, more than 105,000 meals have been distributed to students, families, and others in need.

Organizations partnering in this effort are the City of Little Rock, Clinton Foundation, World Central Kitchen, Little Rock School District, Pulaski County Special School District, Central Arkansas Library System, and Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance.

Members of the community can get involved and support the effort by signing up to volunteer at littlerock.gov/volunteer or by making a contribution at wck.org/littlerock.

Those in need of transportation may use Rock Region Metro’s to reach many of the distribution locations. Youth ages 12-18 may ride for free from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Youth 11 and under are required to travel with a guardian. More information is available at rrmetro.org.

Below are the locations where meals may be picked up for the week of April 6 – 12, 2020. An online map can be found here: https://bit.ly/2UQe6I5.

Those picking up meals at any of the following locations should collect their meal(s) and take it with them to consume off-site. Everyone is requested to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before picking up meals and to maintain a safe social distance of at least six feet between other people.
