FROM HUNGEr To HOPE

The U.S.D.A. projects that eastern 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 quadrupling 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.

Building Hope

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 50,000 meals per week.

The project is expected to be completed by Summer 2023.
