Governor Mary Fallin’s Third Annual Feeding Oklahoma Food and Fund Drive kicks off on Oct. 15 with the goal of raising 1.2 million meals to help feed hungry families, children and seniors this holiday season. The month long food and fund drive will benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, and their partner agencies across the state.
According to the USDA, Oklahoma ranks as the fifth hungriest state in the nation, with more than 675,000 Oklahomans struggling with hunger every day. The Oklahoma food banks provide enough food to feed more than 150,000 people each week with demand increasing during the holiday season.
Non-perishable food items can be donated at all BancFirst locations, Love’s Travel Stops, Verizon Wireless stores, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and all partner agencies. Monetary gifts can be made online at www.feedoklahoma.org. UPS will pick up donations from BancFirst and Love’s locations in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metro areas and deliver those to the Oklahoma food banks.
