LITTLE ROCK — “Holiday Helpings,” the popular holiday meal preparation program that
debuted for the 2018 Thanksgiving season, is returning to again help take the stress
out of holiday cooking.
The C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center is offering full-course meals, serving six to eight
people, as well as a la cart items. The main course — roasted turkey, country ham
or pork tenderloin — is accompanied by a quart of turkey gravy, cornbread dressing,
a choice of two sides and a dozen dinner rolls. Prices range from $80 to $100.
Marshall Robertson, 4-H Center program specialist for the University of Arkansas System
Division of Agriculture, said he has received increasingly enthusiastic feedback through
each of the holidays the center has helped to cater since this time last year.
“Reaction from our past Holiday Helpings promotions, including Thanksgiving, Christmas
and Easter, has been overwhelmingly positive,” Robertson said. “Providing an opportunity
to support the largest youth organization in the state along with a chance to get
some really delicious food prepared to relieve a little of that holiday stress really
has people excited.”
Orders can be placed by phone at 501-821-4444 or online at www.arkansas4hfoundation.com. Orders must be placed by noon, Friday, Nov. 22; orders must be picked up by noon,
Wednesday, Nov. 27. The Vines Center is located at 1 Four H Way, Little Rock, AR
