Let's end hunger in oklahoma
When you see the devastating stats of our neighbors struggling with hunger, it sounds insurmountable, but it is not.
Working together, we can create a society where our children do not go to bed hungry. We can support families so that they are not forced to make a choice between rent and groceries.
Join us in our journey...
Oklahoma is one of only five states with a food insecurity rate above 14.5%. Feeding America projects it will climb to 22.5% in the coming years.
1 in 5 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.
Get the Help You Need.
Find a Food Bank service center near you. Public assistance programs are available to help those in need secure food, housing, healthcare, childcare, and more. We can help you find out which programs you may qualify for, assist with applications and refer you to the appropriate assistance providers.
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 it to increase its service from 10,000 to 60,000 hot meals per week.
The project is expected to be completed by Summer 2023.
