Oklahoma Farm Bureau Partners with Governor's Food Drive

County Farm Bureau offices across Oklahoma are once again serving as drop-off locations for Gov. Mary Fallin's fifth annual Feeding Oklahoma Drive. The goal of the food and fund drive is to raise enough food and funds to provide 2 million meals to help feed families, children and seniors in the state.

The month-long food drive will benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and their partner agencies across the state.

"Time and again, Oklahomans have proven themselves to be the most caring and giving individuals in the nation," Gov. Fallin said. "Last year, Oklahomans from all 77 counties came together and donated over 2 million meals in time for the holiday season. This year, we can do even more for the hungry in our state."

More than 675,000 Oklahomans struggling with hunger every day. The Regional Food Bank provides enough food to feed more than 110,000 people each week, 37 percent of which are children. The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma distributes more than 335,000 meals per week. Demand increases during the holiday season.

"Oklahoma Farm Bureau is proud to participate in this honorable effort to feed hungry Oklahomans," said OKFB President Tom Buchanan. "Farmers and ranchers produce an abundance of safe and affordable food, which should be shared with those who need it most."

The food drive runs through Oct. 31 and Gov. Fallin is encouraging businesses, organizations and individuals to make donations to her Feeding Oklahoma Drive in order to meet the needs of our hungry neighbors this winter.
