Ending Hunger in Oklahoma
The recent report, Ending Hunger in Oklahoma, quantifies the impact of Feeding America in our state. Across the country, members of the Feeding America network of food banks are at the forefront of anti-hunger work. There are two Feeding America food banks that serve Oklahoma—the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Combined, the two food banks in Oklahoma distribute 68.6 million pounds of food annually, which translates into approximately 57.2 million meals. The food banks provide enough food to feed more than 160,000 people each week, including 59,200 children. A total of 1,650 agencies, including Caring Community Friends, partner with Oklahoma food banks to operate food programs to feed Oklahoma’s hungry.
