The "Taste Of Texarkana" that was scheduled for October this year at the Four States Fairgrounds has been canceled.

This was the 29th year for the Taste of Texarkana and it has been canceled because of COVID-19 coronavirus concerns. Because of the new mandates and social distancing and the increase of cases in the area the event organizers felt it would be too difficult to have the event and still make it safe for the vendors and attendees.

The "Taste of Texarkana" benefits Harvest Texarkana and helps replenish the food bank. Harvest Texarkana feeds many in our area throughout the entire year, not just around the holidays.  The Taste of Texarkana usually raises over $40,000 for Harvest Texarkana.

Harvest Regional Food Bank is a nonprofit, community organization working on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic relief to enable those who are struggling due to layoffs, school closings, and other issues. Every donation you made helps a family in need in the area. You can still donate to Harvest Texarkana here.

Did you know that for every dollar you donate it can provide 5 1/2 meals for those in need? With the buying power that Harvest Texarkana has in conjunction with other food banks, every dollar you donate goes so very far in the battle against hunger.
