April’s Resource Round Up

This Earth month, we learned invaluable information from our Little Rock community about practical sustainability. Thanks to our friends at The Root Cafe and Arkansas Potluck Rescue, we were able to compile a list of resources that nurture you and the community.

Below is a list of local Farmer’s Markets that are open this Spring! Can’t make it in-person? No worries, the Arkansas Local Food Network offers online shopping for locally sourced produce.

Are you a SNAP recipient? According to Arkansas Human Services, you are eligible to participate in The double-up food bucks program. “Food Bucks allow SNAP clients to receive a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $20 per market day, to buy fruits and vegetables. You get two for the price of one.” Here is the list of Farmer’s Markets and grocery stores that participate in the double-up food bucks program.

Buying local produce is important and so is managing food waste. As a community, we can continue to reduce food waste by looking to Arkansas Potluck Food Rescue for guidance. “APFR’s operating model is to recover food from commercial kitchens like restaurants, caterers, grocers, hotels, and hospitals. They provide recovered food to hunger relief agencies so that they can better serve their constituents.” Read Arkansas Potluck Food Rescue’s 2020 annual report here and how you can cut down on food waste.
