Back Our Kids

Back Our Kids logo

The Back Our Kids weekend food program was added in the fall of 2013 with 30 bags weekly delivered to Eureka Springs' schoolchildren who were deemed in need of weekend food by Eureka Springs school officials. The average number of children served was 51 during the 2018-19 school year. Back Our Kids is critical for students to have nutritious food on weekends and is funded through community fund-raisers, individuals, churches, businesses, and grants.

    Flint Street Fellowship is an all-volunteer organization. There is no paid staff. FSF is blessed with approximately 50 dedicated volunteers who do everything from grind coffee to unload trucks; from taking input from clients to sorting and hanging clothes; from keeping the shelves stocked and neat to preparing delicious and nutritious lunches for clients; from distributing food to helping with fund-raisers. It is this special group of volunteers who are the heart of Flint Street Fellowship. The Board of Directors - also all volunteers - is extremely grateful for their service.


    Flint Street Fellowship is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization.

    Without the support of individuals, churches, community organizations, businesses, and grant funding, Flint Street Fellowship would not be able to serve those in need.
