Food Pantry

Flint Street Food PantryOpen Mondays and Wednesdays each week from 10 am until 2 pm.  People can come in for groceries every week, if needed. Those receiving help must live in Carroll County, west of the Kings River. In 2014, over 500 families were helped with 4,300 distributions of food. Monthly, approximately 140 families are served.  Donations of food as well as financial contributions are very much appreciated.


Flint Street Lunch RoomOpen Tuesdays and Thursdays each week from 10:00 am until 12:30 pm with a hot lunch being served at 11:00 am. Coffee and cookies are served when doors open at 10 am.  Friendly conversation and relaxing atmosphere are always on the menu.  Lunch is free and open to the public.  In 2014, over 2000 hot lunches were served.

In addition to the above-mentioned weekly services, during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, one food voucher with a $25 value to Harts Family Center is provided to each family for a turkey or a ham. Also, a community dinner, open to the public at no charge, is served at the ECHO dining room on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.


Flint Street ShopShopping is available during all “open” pantry and lunchroom hours listed above and, of course, all items are at no cost.

Back Our Kids weekend food bags for hungry school children

Flint Street Food Packs for KidsBack Our Kids logoCurrently, 57 food bags are assembled and delivered to the Eureka Springs schools on Friday mornings each week during the school year to feed children who, for various reasons, do not get enough to eat at home on the weekends. The BOK program, through Flint Street Fellowship and in conjunction with the ES school officials, was started at the beginning of the Fall 2013 school year with 30 food bags provided each week.  Gradually, more and more hungry children were added to the program until the current number of 57 elementary, middle and high school children are being helped.

Included in the food bags are oatmeal, soup, peanut butter, fresh fruit, string cheese, granola bars and other nutritious and easy-to-prepare food items. Hygiene bags are also periodically included. Target cost per food bag is $5 or under. In the 2014 - 2015 school year, 1,886 food bags were provided at a cost of $7,300.

Fundraisers by the Pied Piper Pub and Inn and the Eureka Springs Rotary Club, as well as grants from the Carroll County Community Foundation Giving Tree Grant Fund, the CCCF Youth Advisory Council and Walmart have been major contributors to the Back Our Kids program, as well as other local donations for which FSF is extremely grateful. Further donations can be sent to Flint Street Fellowship with designation to the BOK program.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Flint Street Fellowship Food Pantry shall be to assist and supply food to those individuals who either have special, short-term needs due to their temporary illnesses or health conditions, temporary unemployment and other temporary conditions; or to those individuals who have long term continuing conditions requiring long-term assistance such as the mentally or physically disabled, the elderly, children, and others with long-term or permanent need for such assistance, such as those working at jobs that don't pay a living wage and, therefore, are forced to seek food assistance.
