The Little Rock Fire Department is launching a free grab and go meal program for kids and teens in partnership with FAB44. Together they hope to #SlamDunkHunger.
“As firefighters, we are in the community daily. We see children of all ages and walks of life. We know there are underprivileged kids in our community, and sometimes the only meals they get are from their schools. We want the community to see fire stations as safe zones. We hope that by serving free meals for kids, we can achieve that goal.”-Mandrell Howell, Little Rock Firefighter
Beginning Tuesday, February 9, meals will be available at Fire Stations No. 19 and No. 24. Meals will be available for pick up from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. while supplies last. The stations will have meals available Monday- Thursday.
- Fire Station No. 19 is located at 10621 Chicot Rd.

The fire department is looking for volunteers to help distribute meals from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday- Thursday. If you are interested in volunteering, you can contact Mandrell Howell at 501-350-6992 or email mhow[email protected]. Help spread the word by downloading a flyer.
