The Gift That Gives... Twice.

Posted By on Thu, Nov 26, 2009 at 9:28 AM


What’s the best gift for the person who loves Arkansas food? A gift that not only feeds the recipient but also feeds hungry Arkansans.

The Arkansas Rice Depot offers great rice mixes and gift baskets for the holidays; and each one comes with a bonus. For every item purchased through the Simple Pleasures program, proceeds from each item go to feed the hungry. And we’re not talking just rice here… we’re talking gourmet quality mixes like Hillbilly Chili, Hoppin’ John and Meatless Monday Soup. I tried a couple of the mixes myself and have to say, the Holiday Rice is a tasty substitute for dressing. I’m also partial to Presidential Parmesan Rice (a Rice Depot blend sold at the Clinton Museum Store).

Baskets include all-Arkansas products such as Bear Kingdom Vineyard jellies, Fischer Honey and J&M Cheese Straws.

ARKANSAS RICE DEPOT. Purchase gourmet rice and bean mixes for your loved ones and feed hungry Arkansans. RANGE: $4-5 for mixes, $40-50 for baskets. ONLINE: PHONE: (501) 565-8855. STORE: 3801 West 65th Street in Little Rock.
