"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," said Shannon Roper, co-owner of S&B’s Burger Joints. "Working with all our guests we will raise a lot of money to help our fellow Oklahomans who are living with hunger."
Oklahoma is the fifth hungriest nation, where one in six residents has inconsistent access to healthy food. The majority of Oklahomans served by the Regional Food Bank are chronically hungry children, seniors living on limited incomes and hardworking families struggling to make ends meet.
“S&B’s Burger Joints is a valued partner in the fight against hunger in Oklahoma,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “We thank them for their continued support and invite the community to join us in fighting hunger while supporting this local business.”
