Panda Express Family Day Fights Hunger Every Second Tuesday of the Month

20 Percent of Local Sales Benefit Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma

(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Nov.11, 2017 – Starting Nov. 14, seven Panda Express metro area locations will join in the fight against hunger by donating 20 percent of sales to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Customers must present a “Family Day Flyer,” found at regionalfoodbank.org/panda, in order to participate in the giveback day. This give-back event will occur every second Tuesday of the month at each of the seven locations.

“We are so grateful to Panda Express for their continued partnership with the Regional Food Bank,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank.  “This is a great way to help raise awareness each month about hunger in our state, as well as give back and enjoy lunch or dinner.”

Panda Express locations are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The seven stores joining in the fight against hunger every second Tuesday of the month are located at:

  • 500 S. MacArthur Blvd in Oklahoma City
  • 116 E. 1-240 Service Rd. in Oklahoma City
  • 2201 N.W. 23rd St. in Oklahoma City
  • 7700 N.W. Expressway in Oklahoma City
  • 14040 N. May Ave. in Oklahoma City
  • 309 S. Bryant in Edmond
  • 1521 Garth Brooks Blvd. in Yukon

Oklahoma remains one of the hungriest states in the nation with one in six residents living with inconsistent access to healthy food. The majority of people served by the Regional Food Bank are chronically hungry children, hardworking families struggling to make ends meet and seniors living on limited incomes. Fellow Oklahomans like Dennis, who shops at the Community Market of Pottawatomie County, a Food & Resource Center affiliated with the Regional Food Bank that provides a client-choice shopping experience similar to a grocery store.

“Thank you for helping to put food on our table at the end of the month,” he said. “To those of us on a limited income, it’s a lot of help. Thank you so much.”

Together, we can solve hunger. To make a tax-deductible donation visit FoodForKids.us or call 405-972-1111.
