Harvest Texarkana Regional Food Bank’s mission is to alleviate hunger in southwest Arkansas and northeast Texas through food distribution and education. Through our network of over 100 agencies in 10 counties, the food bank provides food resources to the hungry in our region. This new web site serves to educate about the continuing need, motivate visitors to help, and offer help to those in need. What is a Food Bank? When most people think of feeding the hungry, they envision soup kitchens for the homeless or small food pantries where poor people can visit for a box of canned goods. But as a Food Bank, Harvest Texarkana is much larger in scope; in fact, it’s the massive behind-the-scenes resource that supports these types of programs that feed the hungry. The Food Bank also provides food for shelters, residential group homes, and after-school programs. The Food Bank is in effect, a distributor and central supply point that procures the food, sorts it, stores it, and efficiently matches it to those in need according to need. How much food is distributed? Harvest Texarkana distributed over 2.6 million pounds of food in 2009. Harvest Texarkana distributed its 10 millionth pound of food in March, 2010. Most of this was surplus product that would otherwise have simply gone to waste. Where does the food come from? Starting with Food Rescue, Harvest Texarkana collected excess prepared food from restaurants for immediate distribution and use at shelters and soup kitchens in Texarkana. This program continues today. But in addition, Harvest Texarkana began Food Banking around 2005. The

Food Bank solicits donations of food from local, regional, and national producers and manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and supermarkets, and collects additional products through organized community food drives. Additionally, Harvest Texarkana distributes USDA TEFAP (Commodities) resources to agencies who qualify for this program in the state of Arkansas. How is the food distributed? Harvest Texarkana distributes the resources collected through the membership of over 100 partner agencies. Through this network of food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, residential and senior/child care organizations, Harvest Texarkana assists over 40,000 individuals each year. Harvest Texarkana serves agencies in Bowie County Texas and the 9 southwestern Arkansas counties. How is the Food Bank funded? Harvest Texarkana is a private, nonprofit 501(c)3 community service that relies solely on private contributions, foundation grants, and fundraisers. Additionally, shared maintenance contributions from our agency partners assists in meeting the Food Bank’s operating budget. More than 95% of funds go to mission fulfillment; less than 5% for fundraising. Every dollar raised helps distribute seven pounds of food.

Komen Race for the Cure速 Series, the largest series of 5K runs/ fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Since its inception in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure series has grown from one local Race with 800 participants to a global series of more than 120 Races with more than 1 million people expected to participate in 2013. The Komen Race for the Cure is a unique event, designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. It has proved to be an enormously effective way to reach many women and men with the message that breast cancer is not necessarily fatal if mammography and breast self-exam become routine. As well as being a road race for runners, the Komen Race for the Cure is an emotionally charged event that attracts many first timers and recreational runners. The Komen Race for the Cure is an opportunity for thousands of women, men and their families, running or walking, to spread the breast cancer message within their communities.

Martin Luther King Day! January 25 2014 Phantom Ball - On Saturday, January 25, 2014, we will celebrate our eleventh annual Phantom Ball at Northridge Country Club. The proceeds of this event will benefit the client services of Temple Memorial Rehabilitation Center. This event will honor a very special member of our community as the “Phantom”. The criteria for “Phantom” is one who gives generously of their time and financial support to the Temple Center and the community of Texarkana Texas. In order to build suspense and intrigue for our event, the identity of this year’s honoree will not be revealed until the night of the Ball. In 1952, Dr. S.A. Collom and a gathering of Texarkana citizens founded the Temple Home for Crippled Children in response to the polio epidemic which was sweeping across our nation. Since that time, the Temple Center, an Easter Seals affiliate, has evolved and expanded into a premier facility providing physical, occupational and speech therapy for children and adults with disabilities. As a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, the staff and Board of the Temple Center are committed to providing service to clients regardless of their ability to pay.
