“Our mission is Fighting Hunger... Feeding Hope.”
More than 675,000 Oklahomans will wake up today and wonder where their next meal will come from. Oklahoma ranks among the top five states in the nation in the number of people who are hungry, but thanks to donors, volunteers and advocates, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is "Fighting Hunger...Feeding Hope."
Established in 1980, the Regional Food Bank is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. In Fiscal Year 2013, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma distributed 47.9 million pounds of food and product through a network of more than 1,000 partner agencies and schools throughout 53 central and western Oklahoma counties. The Regional Food Bank provides enough food to feed more than 90,000 people each week – one-third of which are children.
The Regional Food Bank's administrative costs are below four percent, which means 96 cents of every dollar donated helps to directly provide food to Oklahomans in need.
