Fayetteville Roots Festival has expanded its program to help feed local musicians who have lost income due to COVID-19.

The organization has been packing up quick-cook meals on Thursdays and Fridays for local musicians at its headquarters on the Fayetteville square.

This week, organizers announced new partnerships with Wood Stone Craft Pizza and US Foods to help expand the program. The festival is now selling frozen Wood Stone Pizzas online to help raise funds to support their meal pickup and grocery care packages for local musicians.

The pizzas are for sale at the festival’s website, and locals can pick them up the headquarters, located located at 1 E. Mountain St. in Fayetteville from 12-5 p.m. on Thursdays, and from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Fridays.

The new program was announced Wednesday, and already some of the pizzas have sold out.

Those who’d like to pitch in to help the cause can donate via Venmo @fayettevillerootsfestival, or by help pack meals via The Pack Shack NWA.
