Portion of Proceeds from Beverage Sales Fights Hunger

(OKLAHOMA CITY) — April 10, 2017 – This Thursday, Blue Garten is stepping up to help the one in six Oklahomans who have inconsistent access to food. All day, a portion of proceeds from a special beverage will be donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.  From 5 to 7 p.m., donations will also be accepted for the nonprofit.

Bleu Garten, located at 301 N.W. 10th St. in Oklahoma City, is Oklahoma’s original food truck park.
