Meals on Wheels Oklahoma City partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Saturday, July 11 to distribute emergency food boxes to homebound seniors.

Volunteers helped to distribute the 725 boxes to low-income, homebound seniors across the Oklahoma City metro area. The emergency food boxes contain about 30 pounds of shelf-stable foods such as canned vegetables and soups, canned meats and sauces, pasta and juice.

Meals on Wheels Oklahoma City is a program of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. 

"We are so grateful for this partnership with St. Luke’s United Methodist Church,” said Deb Bunting, interim CEO of the Regional Food Bank. “Their hard work ensures that some of the metro’s most vulnerable residents know where their next meals will come from.” 

Food assistance remains available at more than 300 Regional Food Bank partners across central and western Oklahoma. Visit rfbo.org/get-help to find a pantry in your area.
