$5,000 donation = 15,000 meals for Arkansans in need

More Arkansas families in need will have food on their tables thanks to a donation by a Little Rock equipment company.

Briggs Equipment presented the Arkansas Foodbank with a $5,000 check Friday morning.

"This $5,000 will be turned into 15,000 meals because of the ways we can leverage the food and things we have access too," said Rhonda Sanders with the Arkansas Foodbank.

The Foodbank said now is a critical time for donations, during the lull between holiday giving and fall.
