Arvest Bank in its pledge to provide 1 million meals is teaming up the Pack Shack, a local hunger relief charity that hosts Feed the Funnel packing parties to benefit area food banks.

On Saturday (Sept. 13) Arvest is asking for the community’s help as it hosts a packing party for those making a $10 donation. The group will assemble on the Fayetteville Square between 9 a.m. and noon during the Farmers’ Market.

All of the 10,000 meals packed in three hours time will go to benefit the 7hills Homeless Shelter and Life Source International working to alleviate hunger in Fayetteville.

Arvest Bank’s 1 Million Meals campaign runs through Nov. 1 and challenges bank associates, customers and communities alike to help provide at least one million meals for hungry families across the bank’s four-state region – Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
