CHARITIES

There are 500,000 Oklahomans at risk of hunger every day, including one in five of all children in the state. The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma distributes enough food to feed more than 63,000 hungry Oklahomans each week through 700 charitable feeding programs and elementary schools in Oklahoma. The majority of those helped by the Regional Food Bank are children, senior citizens on fixed incomes, working families who cannot make ends meet, homeless families and individuals, indigent people working to recover from mental illness or drug/alcohol addictions and victims of domestic violence. The Food bank accomplishes all this through programs like, Food 4 Kids, a program designed especially for chronically hungry elementary age children who receive backpacks filled with non-perishable, kid-friendly food to sustain them over weekends and holidays when school meal programs are not available. The Regional Delivery System delivers food throughout the Regional Food Bank’s 53 county service area, making 51 urban deliveries and 52 food deliveries monthly to 32 communities in rural Oklahoma.
