Mayor Jordan announces “We Can” food drive

Around the country, we’re starting to hear some encouraging news about the economy.

But times are still tough for a lot of people right now, even right here in Fayetteville.

Food banks have taken a hit in Northwest Arkansas due to decreasing donations, and an increasing amount of locals who need help. Today, Mayor Lioneld Jordan encouraged Fayetteville residents to do something about it.

Mayor Jordan is asking Fayetteville residents to donate canned goods to local food banks through a sustaining food drive called “With a Can We Can.”

Jordan is encouraging Fayetteville residents to pick up a can or two of non-perishable food each time they visit the grocery store. Residents can then drop the cans off at the Mayor’s table at the Farmer’s Market, area fire station on the first weekend each month, or any of the locations listed below.

We Can! Drop Off Locations:
City Hall
All City Fire Stations
PEG Building
Parks & Recreation Offices
Mayor’s table at Farmer’s Market on the Square on Saturday Mornings
