Food For Kids: Our Commitment

This is just the beginning...

How To Help 'Fill The Plate' For Fellow Oklahomans

The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, along with their partners, provide more than 396,000 meals each week to people struggling with hunger.


Food For Kids

Over one-third of the Community Food Bank's emergency food recipients on a weekly basis are children. There is a critical connection between childhood nutrition, cognitive and physical development. Even nutritional deficiencies of a short-term nature negatively impact a child's health, behavior, and the ability to concentrate and perform complex tasks. Going without food can cause behavioral and psychological effects such as depression, aggression, anxiety, and poor social skills. Food is the most essential school supply.

When Hunger Ends, Learning Begins. Food for Kids currently has four programs to help combat this problem: the Backpack Program, the School Pantry Program, Free Family Farmer’s Markets and Extended Holiday Feeding Programs

It only cost $120 to feed a child for an entire year.

How Can You Help?

A $120 donation can provide enough weekend and holiday food for one child for an entire school year. A gift of $5,000 will provide enough food for 25 hungry children at one school for an entire school year. Please donate now to the Community Food Bank.
