NWA Food Bank Online fund raiser coming soon!

September is Hunger Action Month. A month where we stand together and speak with one voice. It's a month to spread the word about the hunger crisis, and dedicate ourselves to a solution. Will you join in? On September 29th, the NWA Food Bank will be hosting an online fundraiser called Fill Their Shelves from 8am-5pm. This fundraiser will allow you to donate funds directly to CEO, and will be used to fill our shelves with food for our neighbors in need. 


CEO is honored to have been named one of the two Agencies of the Year by the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. This recognition by the Food Bank, which serves 160 agencies in 4 counties, is a testament to the work of CEO, and we are proud of the acknowledgment. While much of the food that CEO distributes is donated, 60% of CEO's food needs are purchased from the food bank.

Ozark Regional Transit, which stops in front of CEO (Route 2) announces that children under 18 can ride free all summer until September 1.   Also, veterans with a valid VA ID can also ride for free indefinitely.

Additional Hours!

As CEO begins its 27th year of operations, we are thrilled to announce that  CEO has commenced Saturday operations. We will begin by opening from 10-12 the first Saturday of each month, and hope to increase the number of Saturdays over time. This will enable us to better assist clients whose employment makes it difficult for them to be at our office during the week.   

This also presents opportunities for those who wish to volunteer, but are unavailable on weekdays. And we need you to volunteer! The only way that we will be able to expand our Saturday openings will be to obtain weekend volunteers. Please get in touch if you can volunteer to work on Saturdays.
