Did you know…Arkansas currently ranks #1 in the nation for obesity AND in the top 3 in the nation for food insecurity? Baptist Health is committed to combating these statistics by helping to expand access to healthy foods and nutrition education to Arkansans in need.
Each week during the summer at the Baptist Health BHealthy Farmers Market, volunteers work tirelessly to assemble individual boxes of fresh Arkansas produce that is distributed to families in high-needs neighborhoods and communities. This program will provide access to healthy, local produce and nutrition education while also supporting local Arkansas farmers.
