(OKLAHOMA CITY) – March 20, 2019 - Twelve Jersey Mike's locations will donate 100 percent of their sales to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food for Kids Programs during the Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving Wednesday, March 27.
Each March during its Month of Giving, Jersey Mike's encourages customers to make a donation to the Regional Food Bank. The Month of Giving culminates during the Day of Giving. This marks the ninth consecutive year that Jersey Mike's has selected the Regional Food Bank as the recipient of their Month of Giving proceeds.
One in four Oklahoma children lives with hunger. The Regional Food Bank provided more than 2.3 million meals for chronically hungry children through its Food for Kids Programs last year.
The metro Jersey Mike's locations shattered their donations record in 2018 by raising more than $74,000, or enough to feed more than 740 students in a Food for Kids Program for one year.
That helps children like 8-year-old Sienna, who receives food through the Food for Kids Backpack Program.
"I would be hungry if I didn't get the backpack because I wouldn't get a snack at the end of the day. I get hungry. I feel worn out when I'm playing and don't have snacks." Sienna said.
