North Little Rock, Arkansas — In a joint effort, Inclusion Magazine and the Urban League of the State of Arkansas will be hosting the USDA’s Farmers to Families program in North Little Rock, AR.

“I cannot stand on the sidelines while so many Arkansans and their families are struggling. Too many children are going to bed hungry, while Arkansas ranks 48th in household income. The ultimate purpose of public service is human empowerment and the ability to uplift others. Food insecurity affects all families, regardless of race, ethnicity, or background. Inclusion is our ultimate goal which is why we’ve joined efforts with the Urban League of Arkansas to combat this critical issue.” – Supha Mays, President & Founder of Inclusion Magazine
“The Urban League of the State of Arkansas is proud to join with Inclusion Magazine in combating this critically important issue. The COVID-19 Pandemic has only added to existing problems many families in Arkansas have faced for far too long. Food insecurity in our community impacts all of us. Through the Farmers to Families initiative, we will provide up to 36,000lbs of food to families. ULSA will continue these efforts until food insecurity is eradicated in Arkansas” – Scott Hamilton, President & CEO of the Urban League of the State of Arkansas.
