Little Rock fire, city departments challenged to help Summer Cereal Drive

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Little Rock Fire Department and the Arkansas Foodbank has issued a challenge to local fire and city departments to help feed hungry families this summer.

Capt. Warren Robinson of the Little Rock Central Fire Station, which is a drop off site for the drive, has challenged each Little Rock fire station to donate 25 boxes of cereal, and each Little Rock city department to donate 10 boxes of cereal.

So far the challenge has been met by several departments:

New Diamond Bear brewing location opening soon

New Diamond Bear brewing location opening soon

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The kegs are running low at Diamond Bear Brewing Company. We are looking at a shortage of the locally produced beer for a little while, but the silver lining is it is all part of a move to a bigger facility. Plus the promise of some new things to offer.

The new location is very close to opening, and they are hoping to start doing practice brews this week. The new spot will also have a restaurant. All the owner will say at this time is that it is going to open soon, and by the look of things, it is going to be really soon.

The name of Diamond Bear's new restaurant is the Arkansas Ale House. Right now, the menu is set, and they're experimenting with different ingredients to see what works best. One of the signature menu items is bratwurst.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Market Street Cinema is reportedly moving to the old Riverdale 10 location on Cantrell Road.

Matt Smith, owner of Market Street, said they are currently installing new equipment and hope to have some screens up by June 6, with more running by June 13.

Smith also said they plan to apply for a beer and wine permit, and if it is granted, they plan on expanding their menu offerings.

Danny Carpenter knows what it's like to get his hands dirty.

"I've been here ever since the market has been open."

And now that the farmer's market will be open later on Tuesdays, so will Carpenter's Produce.

‘Stamp Out Hunger’ This Saturday, May 10th

This Saturday, May 10, 2014, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) joins forces with the Arkansas Foodbank, United Way, the AARP Foundation and others to help Stamp Out Hunger in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas.  Letter carriers will fan out across the nation to pick up donated food on doorsteps and beside mailboxes as they deliver the mail.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held annually on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive benefitting Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, and its network of food banks. Last year’s drive brought in 74 million pounds of food and provided assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
