LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — According to the Arkansas Hunger Alliance, one out of every six people struggles with hunger in Arkansas, making it one of the most food-insecure states in the nation.
The Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance has been working to change those numbers for 15 years.
Turnip for Hunger is an annual event where volunteers gather in the field to help pick and load turnips for transport. It will take place on Saturday, November 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All produce gleaned will go to Arkansas Foodbank to be distributed to over 400 pantries in their service network.
Volunteers will enjoy traditional harvest games like a turnip toss and turnip sack races. Lunch and water will be provided for volunteers.
