For nearly 17 years, Newton County Christian Foodroom has focused its efforts to benefit the impoverished community in Newton County in Arkansas. The organization, located in Jasper, AR has a population of less than 500 people. On average, the foodroom impacts 60-80 families each month. This organization collects food solely on fundraisers like the Save-A-Label program and donations from local churches.
Volunteers such as Gary and Merlen Malhado assist with collecting labels for Save-A-Label program. Funds have been used to stock the shelves of the foodroom. “Our county is very poor. Jobs are slim to none and are low paying,” Marlene said, describing the county. This foodroom is vital to this community.
