(OKLAHOMA CITY) – June 8, 2017 – The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is once again teaming up with S&B’s Burger Joint to fight hunger in Oklahoma, one burger at a time. For every Indian Taco Burger purchased in June, S&B's will donate $1 to Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food for Kids Programs. The Indian Taco Burger is available at S&B’s eight metro area locations.
"Paying it forward and supporting our communities is a key core value for S&B’s. We are honored to be able to partner with the Regional Food Bank once again to fight childhood hunger," said Shannon Roper, co-owner of S&B’s Burger Joint. "Working with all our guests, we will raise a lot of money to help feed the hungry children in Oklahoma."
One in four children in Oklahoma face hunger every day. Last school year, the Regional Food Bank provided millions meals to chronically hungry children through Food for Kids childhood hunger programs: Backpack Program, Kids Cafe, Summer Feeding, and School Pantries.
“We are grateful for S&B’s partnership in fighting childhood hunger,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. “Over the summer, families struggling to make ends meet are challenged to replace the meals children receive during the school year. This is why programs like the Regional Food Bank’s Summer Feeding program is so critical.”
Every $200 raised through this partnership will provide nourishing food for a chronically hungry child for an entire school year. For more information about S&B’s, including locations and hours, visit sandbburgers.com.
