Oklahoma City — The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma works with more than 1,1000 partner agencies and schools in 53 central and western counties in Oklahoma to provide food and resources to families, seniors and children struggling with hunger.
Last year, 915,470 pounds of food were distributed to hungry Oklahomans in Pontotoc County.
“One in six of our neighbors has inconsistent access to food,” said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
“No Oklahoman should ever have to go to bed hungry. If you are in need of assistance, please contact the Regional Food Bank to be connected to one of our partner agencies.”
In Pontotoc county, the Regional Food Bank works with seven partner agencies to fight hunger year-round. Partner agencies include: Family Crisis Center Inc. Southwest Church of Christ, Southern Oklahoma Nutrition Project, St Lukes Episcopal, Salvation Army, Asbury United Methodist Church and Southern Oklahoma Nutrition Project in Allen.
