Hunger isn’t a game in Arkansas


One of every 4 kids in Arkansas struggles with hunger. That’s close to 200,000 children living in every county in our state. They could be someone you know – your friend, teammate, someone who sits next to you in class.

The 200,000 Reasons initiative is a three-year effort by the United Methodists of Arkansas to reduce childhood hunger in Arkansas. With 660 United Methodist churches in Arkansas, we can make a difference by working together with other churches, hunger agencies, local food pantries and feeding programs, community gardens and gleaning projects.
