Helping Families Access Nutritional Food

In response to the growing crisis and connection between poverty and obesity, Samaritan Market has developed a healthy foods initiative that focuses on improving the overall nutritional quality of the food available within the market. Fresh, organic produce from our onsite farm is distributed through the market, along with lean proteins, and whole grains.

“Food insecurity is an economical issue that becomes a heath issue. At Samaritan, we believe that everyone should have access to healthy foods. We aim to empower clients to confidently make healthier food choices, while offering encouragement and walking along side them through the difficulties they may be facing,” says Nutrition Manager, Chelsea Plascensia.

We are always in need of volunteers for both of our Market food pantries in Springdale and Rogers. The most critical current need is for volunteers to assist clients in shopping in our self-serve pantries during pantry hours listed above. Working in a Samaritan Market is a wonderful and rewarding experience!

Host a Donation Drive

It costs approximately $12,000 per month for SCC to keep our markets stocked with enough food to meet even the minimum allotments that client families need. By hosting a food drive for the Samaritan Market through your school, neighborhood, church, organization, or business, you help us to keep our monthly food costs to a minimum which, in turn, allows us to focus on other areas of need.

For more information on how to host a food drive, please email our In-Kind Manager, Shannon Green, or call her at (479) 636-4198.

More About the Program

More than just a place that dispenses food, our market offers a friendly ear, words of encouragement, prayer, Bibles and information on other resources around Northwest Arkansas. No identification or documentation of need is required but clients are limited to one monthly visit. Market clients are given a 2-3 day supply of food.

“I love that we not only address a client’s physical needs, but we are always there to encourage and pray with them.”
