What is Be Mighty Little Rock?

Be Mighty Little Rock is a citywide campaign to connect kids and teens 18 and under to free meals.

See a list of meal sites near you. Due to the pandemic and special pandemic-time waivers, caregivers are able to pick up meals for the kids in their houehold.

Various activities are offered at meal sites to help children stay active and learn. Such activities may include reading or exercise programs, cooking classes and games, among others. During the pandemic, these include more grab & go activities that can be done at anytime from the comfort of home. Parents are encouraged to take advantage of this free and much-needed resource for their children. Community based organizations such as churches and nonprofits are invited to join the campaign by starting a meal site or volunteering with an existing program.

Summer meals are offered at schools, libraries, parks, splash pads, community centers, and other sites. Some sites offer breakfast and lunch; others offer dinner or a snack. The campaign has been made possible through the CHAMPS grant from the National League of Cities (NLC) and Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). Since inception of the program, a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) expanded our services to include more citywide access to food security screenings and referrals, nutrition education, and public transportation. NRPA, NLC, and FRAC work in partnership with the Walmart Foundation.
