TULSA, Oklahoma -- An Owasso food manufacturer, National Steak and Poultry has donated 34,000 pounds of sirloin and chicken to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.

"We value our partnership with NSP because they provide highly nutritious protein items to the hungry, which are oftentimes hard to come by," said Sara Waggoner, executive director of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. "We know that the 440 Partner Programs we serve will greatly appreciate the donation, especially since they are experiencing about a 40 percent increase in the number of people coming to them for food assistance."

Since partnering with the Food Bank in 1997, NSP has donated more than 200,000 pounds of food.

"The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma has always been the most important of our community outreach programs. It helps so many families and allows us to give back to Oklahomans," said David Albright, CEO of National Steak and Poultry.

The food from National Steak and Poultry delivered the meat to the Food Bank at 1304 North Kenosha Thursday morning.
