One in six adults has inconsistent access to food. Established in 1980, the Regional Food Bank is the largest private domestic hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. In fiscal year 2015, the Regional Food Bank distributed 49.9 million pounds of food through a network of 1,250 charitable feeding programs and schools throughout 53 central and western Oklahoma counties.
"The food you provide for us helps a lot. Otherwise, we would go without,” shared a client of the Regional Food Bank. “I really appreciate what you do."
The Regional Food Bank’s administrative and fundraising costs consistently remain below four percent, which means 96 cents out of every dollar donated goes to feed Oklahomans struggling with hunger.
