Fearless Food Fight

Serving hope to
the hungry

Fighting Hunger in Arkansas

As part of Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield's 70th anniversary, we are committed to providing healthy food and fighting food insecurity throughout the year. Watch the funnel fill as we make progress towards our pledge to pack 700,000 meals to fight hunger in Arkansas.

We will also reach out to schools, businesses and community organizations to help us pack these meals and stock food banks and empty pantries in vulnerable communities. For many Arkansans, it could be what gets them through lean times.

Pep Rally with a Purpose events

This year, once again hosted the Kick-off Classic, presented by hootens.com, with eight meal-packing events and pep rallies at high schools across the state. These Pep Rally with a Purpose events gave football players and cheerleaders the opportunity to pack meals for their local food banks and culminated in the Kickoff Classic games on Saturday, Aug. 25 and Monday, Aug. 27. Visit each school's page below for more details on their meal-packing efforts. 

Providing healthy food helps our citizens take a step toward better health and a better life. We hope you will help us make it better … together.
