TULSA, Oklahoma -- Many campaigns are asking people to "click for a cause," but if there's one cause to motivate Tulsans to click – Walmart just might have it. Tulsa is in the running for a $1 million grant to fight hunger.

"With Oklahoma as the fourth hungriest state in the nation according to the USDA, we could really use this money," said Cindy Stevens, communications director for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. "And imagine what $1 million could do for our local economy."

Tulsa is currently in sixth place, competing with communities including Fresno, California; San Antonio, Texas; Buffalo, New York; Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Wichita, Kansas.

Fighting Hunger Together

Tulsa just fell into sixth place last week, so the city at least needs to make the top five to earn the $100,000 grant.

From November 15 through December 31, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are asking people to visit Walmart's Facebook page and help decide which cities should receive $1.5 million in grants to fight hunger. Participants will choose from a list of 100 communities where hunger rates are the highest – the city with the most support will receive $1 million in grants and the next five cities with the highest support will receive $100,000 each.
