FROM HUNGER TO HOPE
The U.S.D.A. projects that northeastern Oklahoma soon will have the nation’s highest rate of food insecurity for children.
We are on a mission to end hunger in our state by expanding our services and doubling the amount of food distributed. We are working every day with our community, local farmers, and partners to get families the food they need.
Together, we can end hunger in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is one of only five states with a food insecurity rate above 14.5%. Feeding American projects will climb to 22.5% in the coming years.
1 in 4 Children Go
To Bed Hungry
As one grandmother explained, “I can draw a bath. I can read a bedtime story. But I can’t create food out of thin air.”
583,570 Are Food Insecure
1 in 6 of our statewide population is considered food insecure, leaving 594,000 Oklahomans unsure where they will get their next meal.
Every $1 Provides Four Meals
Your compassion and support help feed children, families, and neighbors facing hunger. For every $1 donated, we can provide four meals to a family in need. We are on a mission to end hunger in eastern Oklahoma.
We need your help to make it happen.

The new Food Bank building will increase capacity in the culinary center, volunteer center, warehouse, and partner agency access. Updates to the culinary center, including commercial-grade kitchen equipment, will allow the agency to increase its service from 11,000 to 40,000 meals per week.
The project is expected to be completed by Summer 2023.
