CADC is seeking community-minded residents to volunteer in the USDA Commodity Distribution program in Lonoke County. Volunteers are needed to help unload and pack food items and to help distribute food to the low-income. This is an assembly line process that is well suited to larger groups of volunteers as well as individuals. 10-15 volunteers are needed for each distribution. Volunteers must be flexible in their hours, as food delivery times may vary. Volunteers must also be committed. To volunteer, contact Evelyn Reed at 501-778-1133 or info@cadc.com.

All customers receiving commodities must present identification. To be eligible to receive USDA commodities, income guidelines must be met. The income guidelines for this program are based on 130% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Based on these guidelines, a one person household must make less than $15,301 per year to qualify for this program. For each additional family member, add $5,408.

This is an equal opportunity program.
