Moore Feeding More Match Feeds Hungry Moore Residents

BancFirst Matches Donations, Continues to Fight Hunger in Moore

(Moore, Okla.)  – Oct. 13, 2017 – BancFirst continues to match all donations made to the Moore Food & Resource Center by volunteers – up to $10,000. Once met, this match will provide the equivalent of 100,000 meals for chronically hungry children, hardworking families struggling to make ends meet and seniors with inconsistent access to food in Moore and south Oklahoma City. The Moore FRC is owned and operated by the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

“BancFirst is proud to join with the Moore Food & Resource Center in its efforts to fight hunger in our community,” said Craig Turner, president of BancFirst Moore. “The Moore Feeding More match is a great opportunity to encourage donations and we’re happy to be a part of it.”

A $1 donation typically provides five meals but thanks to the match, every dollar donated will have twice the impact -- providing 10 meals for Moore residents struggling with hunger. One in six Oklahomans lives with hunger daily. In Cleveland County, that’s more than 39,000 people, including 11,550 children.

“Hunger exists in Moore and south Oklahoma City, we see it every day,” said Skyler Parker, executive director of the Moore FRC. “That’s why the commitment of corporate partners like BancFirst is so important. We really appreciate their support and so do the clients we serve.”

Donations can be made to the Moore Feeding More match at the Moore FRC, located at 2635 N. Shields in Moore, Okla., or online at moorefeedingmore.org. 

The Moore FRC offers client-choice shopping that allows clients to select the foods they need and want in a supermarket-like setting. The center places an emphasis on nutritious foods, especially fresh fruit and vegetables. The Moore FRC opened in 2014 and serves more than 1,900 families a month. In addition to providing access to nutritious food, the center also allows volunteers and staff more opportunities to interact with clients and find additional ways they can be of service.

The Moore FRC needs volunteers year-round. Volunteers are needed to help clients shop for food, stock the shelves, and assist with other tasks. Bilingual volunteers are also needed.  Volunteers must be at least eight years old and children under 16 must have a parent, guardian or group leader present with them while volunteering.
