how we do it
filling plates, not landfills
WE FIGHT HUNGER
For more than 30 years, Potluck Food Rescue has fought food insecurity in Arkansas by redirecting food to organizations that fight hunger.
WE STOP FOOD WASTE
In Pulaski County alone, thousands of pounds of food are discarded every day. We work with our partners to divert this food and keep it out of landfills.
WE PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
We keep food from the landfill to stop harmful greenhouse gases from contributing to climate change.
bridging the gap
It’s simple. People should not go hungry with so much food being discarded from restaurants, cafeterias, and other places every single day. Diverting food to solve hunger issues in Arkansas is only natural. And helping the environment while we reduce food waste and provide hunger relief? It’s a win-win-win!
get to know us
We are the only organization dedicated solely to food rescue and food waste in Arkansas.
We mostly handle perishable goods. This makes us unique from traditional food banks.
We supplement food bank offerings, which are typically canned and dry goods, with fresh foods.
We’ve been doing this for more than 30 years!
