(OKLAHOMA CITY) – July 5, 2018 – Every $1 donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma provides four meals for chronically hungry children, seniors on fixed incomes and families struggling to put food on the table. With the launch of the Feed OK app, the Regional Food Bank is making it easier than ever to join in the fight to end hunger in the state.
“Oklahoma is the fifth hungriest state in the nation, where one in six Oklahomans lives with hunger,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer, Regional Food Bank. “Join us in ending hunger by donating your spare change through this user-friendly and secure app.”
To get started, download the Feed OK app in the Apple App Store and Google Play, text “Give2-FeedOK” to 77948 or visit regionalfoodbank.org/feedok. Once Oklahomans sign up, they securely link an account or debit/credit card they use regularly and their purchases on that card will be rounded to the nearest dollar to help the Regional Food Bank solve hunger.
The Regional Food Bank provides enough food to feed 136,000 each week. Last year, the Regional Food Bank distributed more than 52 million pounds of food, or more than 43.4 million meals, and product through a network of more than 1,300 community-based partner agencies and charitable feeding programs and schools throughout 53 central and western Oklahoma counties.
Working together, we can end hunger in Oklahoma. For more information visit regionalfoodbank.org/feedok or call 405-972-1111.
