Turnip for Hunger - “This is a day of great fun, food, games, and hard work. Volunteers gather in the field to help pick and load turnips for transport. All produce gleaned will go to Arkansas Foodbank to be distributed to over 400 pantries in their service network. We recommend volunteers wear sturdy shoes, bring gloves, and we will provide the rest.

• What we'll do Open Door Outreach invites you to attend the first-Monday-of-the-month Meetup at Riviera Maya for Happy Hour --featuring cheap drinks and free chips and salsa! (It also has good, inexpensive food for any who want dinner). Come enjoy great conversation with great people, and also receive the latest updates on community events and volunteer opportunities! Oh, if you arrive late, no worries. :) Riviera Maya is located at the junction of I-630 and the Fair Park Blvd exit.
This is our FUN once-per-month (2nd Sundays) cleanup of Main Street, LR, between 12th & 18th Streets. We meet in front of Community Bakery at I-630 & Main St. and our route returns us to Community Bakery (some ODO’ers enjoy staying there afterwards for coffee/chat/dessert!).
• What we'll do Free wine, craft beer, food, live music, socializing --and Art-- at the Historic Arkansas Museum (HAM) for "2nd Friday Art Night”! This is a fun social outing for ODOers; no volunteering necessary. Event is officially from 5PM to 8PM, but most of us arrive around 5:30 or later. Brian will have his cell[masked] if you can’t find the group. After an hour or so at HAM, we often walk to the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies or to the Old State House Museum. Directions to HAM: from LR or NLR on I-30, take exit for “Cantrell Rd, Clinton Ave” (exit 141A) then follow “Markham St.” exit signs to the River Market area, and you are almost there. Immediately after entering 2nd St. from exit ramp, take first left at light onto Cumberland, then next right onto 3rd St. Parking for HAM is on left (the lot says reserved but it's open to the public every Art Night). Address is 200 E. Third St., Little Rock, Arkansas 72201. • What to bring • Important to know
