No child should ever go hungry
COMMUNITY SERVICES CLEARINGHOUSE
The Community Services Clearinghouse has operated for over 42 years as a nonprofit agency based in the River Valley in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Our primary focus is to alleviate hunger in the seven counties we serve.
On average 500 families are helped each month. We also provide food to 2400 kids in the Meals for Kids Backpack Program.
We provide food to cancer and hospice patients, the elderly, the disabled, and children as well as working families.
We partner with churches, civic groups, community agencies, and schools.
