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.
CAMPAIGN TO END HUNGER IN OKLAHOMA
THE FACE OF HUNGER
Hunger hides. Though many of us may not realize the grave disparities that exist in our communities, people face hunger in every county in eastern Oklahoma. With 60% of Oklahomans living paycheck to paycheck, many families are one unexpected bill or incident away from falling off the financial cliff. These are our neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and even family members.
Together, we've made significant progress.
Yet, despite all of our momentum...
Oklahoma remains one of the only five states with a food insecurity rate above 14.5%.
One is seven Oklahomans are food insecure - leaving families struggling between paying bills and putting food on the table.
One in five children in eastern Oklahoma struggle daily with hunger - going to bed not knowing where their next meal will come from.
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE RELIABLE ACCESS TO FOOD
While the issue of hunger has grown in Oklahoma, so have our efforts. We have established a 5-year vision with 10 ambitious goals in a Campaign to End Hunger in Oklahoma.
