Regional Food Bank Seeks 17 Employees for Summer Feeding Program

Nonprofit Gears Up to Fight Childhood Hunger This Summer

(OKLAHOMA CITY)– March 22, 2018 – The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma seeks to hire 17 employees by May 14 to help fight childhood hunger over the summer months. Through the Summer Feeding Program, children up to 18 years of age receive free, nutritious meals and snacks on weekdays.

Full-time summer job opportunities include:

  • Two administrative assistants who will assist the Food for Kids Programs manager with running the Summer Feeding Program.
  • Four drivers to deliver meals to sites in the Oklahoma City metro area. Applicants must have a valid driver’s license and clean driving record.
  • Four program monitors who will visit sites to ensure all sites are following guidelines set by the Summer Feeding Program and the Regional Food Bank.
  • One summer feeding associate to implement the Summer Feeding Program at the Moore Food & Resource Center.
  • Six Hope's Kitchen associates to assist in the daily production of nutritious meals and snacks for the Summer Feeding Program.

“Summer is an especially difficult time for families who are already struggling to keep food on the table and make ends meet,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “Our goal is to provide nutritious meals and snacks to children so that summer days don’t turn into hungry nights.”

Summer meals are provided through support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Meals will be provided equally and without charge to all children age 18 and younger, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

The Summer Feeding Program is part of the Regional Food Bank’s Food for Kids Programs that work to close the hunger gap for the one in four Oklahoma children that lives with hunger. Last year, the Food for Kids Programs provided more than 3 million meals.

Together, we can end hunger. Oklahomans can double the impact of their gifts to help feed even more seniors on fixed incomes. Through March 31, donations to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to fight senior hunger will be matched – up to $100,000. Together, we can make sure every senior has access to nutritious, healthy food. Make a donation today at feedokseniors.org or call 405-600-3136. After the match is met, every $1 donated will provide four meals for seniors living with hunger.
