The City of Tulsa kicked off its annual food drive Monday. Mayor Dewey Bartlett helped the Tulsa Fire and Police Departments jumpstart "Stock the Station."

They're teaming up with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to collect food for those in need.

They say one in six Oklahomans go hungry every year, and it's up to the rest of us to change that.

"I'm encouraging all Tulsans to do what we do best and to help our community in this endeavor," said City Councilor Karen Gilbert.

You can help by dropping off non-perishable food items at a Tulsa fire or police station, or any of the Tulsa City-County libraries.

The drive runs through November 21, 2013.
