What is the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma?
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is a non-profit organization that aims to fight hunger in Oklahoma by providing food assistance to those in need. It serves as a central hub for collecting, sorting, and distributing food and other essential items to more than 1,200 partner agencies, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters, across 53 counties in Oklahoma.
The organization was founded in 1980 and is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. It operates a variety of programs, including the Food for Kids Program, which provides food to children in need on weekends and during school breaks, the Senior Feeding Program, which serves seniors who may be homebound or living on a limited income, and the Mobile Pantry Program, which brings food directly to underserved areas.
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma relies on donations and volunteers to help provide food assistance to those in need. Its mission is to end hunger in Oklahoma by ensuring that everyone has access to nutritious food, regardless of their circumstances.
