"Everybody wants to help, they're just not always aware that there's a need," said Eileen Bradshaw of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. "This was a good way for us to get out with people who were interested in food, and share the message that there is hunger in our midst… It takes all of us to make a difference."

The food bank estimates that nearly one in six Oklahomans are unsure from where their next meal will come.
