Anchor Liz Massey smiles and says, “Oh, here’s Joey.” The cat sits on the desk and gives the camera a green-eyed stare as Liz and fellow-anchor Craig O’Neil carry on with the newscast. The privileged feline is Joey the Garden cat who is a staff member of KTHV, the CBS affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas. Joey has become a big TV celebrity in Arkansas and his fame is spreading nationally.

LITTLE ROCK, AR --  The Arkansas Foodbank has awarded $160,000 worth of freezers, walk-in coolers, shelving, pallet jacks and other warehouse equipment  to church food pantries and other hunger agencies that use the Foodbank as a source of supplies to help them improve their capacity for helping the hungry.

Providers needed for Summer Food Program

Providers needed for Summer Food Program

The Department of Human Services (DHS) is seeking schools, nonprofit organizations and government agencies that are willing to provide children with nutritious meals and snacks during the summer as part of the agency’s Summer Food Service Program.

This 100 percent federally-funded program was created to ensure low income children who receive free or reduced lunches during the school year don’t go hungry when school is not in session.

Last year, 150 providers at more than 400 sites across Arkansas served more than 1.4 million meals to children.
