Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation, where one in four children struggles with hunger every day. Most of the clients served by the Regional Food Bank are children, seniors living on fixed incomes and working families who cannot make ends meet.
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma provides enough food to feed 116,000 Oklahomans every week, 37 percent of whom are children. Last school year, the Regional Food Bank also provided millions of meals for chronically hungry children through its Food for Kids childhood hunger programs, which includes the Backpack Program. Through the Backpack Program, children receive a backpack full of kid-friendly, non-perishable and nutritious food on Friday to sustain them over weekends and school holidays.
“One of my kindergarten students asks me every day if it is Backpack Day,” shared a Backpack Program coordinator. “He tells me Friday is his favorite day because he knows he won't be hungry that night.”
Established in 1980, the Regional Food Bank is the largest private, domestic hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. Last fiscal year, the nonprofit distributed more than 52 million pounds of food and products through a network of more than 1,200 charitable feeding programs and schools in 53 central and western Oklahoma counties.
Together, we can solve childhood hunger. Every donation to Food for Kids between now and September 30 will be matched, up to $150,000, thanks to the generosity of the Masonic Fraternity of Oklahoma, Top of the World, David Gorham and two anonymous families. To make a donation, visit foodforkids.us or call 405-600-3136. For more information, visit regionalfoodbank.org.
