TULSA, Oklahoma -- Some Tulsans are getting help restocking after the storm.

Several area organizations came together to set up an emergency food pantry at Kendall-Whittier Elementary Friday.

They were giving away the basics like bread and milk as well as diapers and formula.

Organizers say a lot of families lost money because they couldn't go to work. But, they say kids being at home cost more too.

"They're used to children being able to eat at least two meals a day at school and so it's been an additional drain on family food supplies and their home pantries are bare," Trinna Burrows said.

Organizers say they couldn't have pulled this off without the help of volunteers from Kendall-Whittier and the University of Tulsa.
