The annual Hunger Action Breakfast hosted by the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance was held Sept. 15 in the ballroom of the Junior League Building. The nonprofit's signature event during Hunger Action Month honors Arkansans fighting hunger in the state.
Guests enjoyed a breakfast buffet with a choice of fruit salad, sausage egg casserole, quiche, fried potatoes, bacon and banana nut bread. The program began with a welcome from event chairs Marti and Scott Hamilton and an invocation by the Rev. Glenn Hersey.
