TULSA, Okla. -

September marks the beginning of "Hunger Action Month" and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma is hoping more people will join in the fight to end hunger.

Hunger Action Month is coming at a crucial time as the Regional Food Bank says food security rates have climbed higher than during the peak of the Great Depression with an additional 215,000 Oklahomans going hungry in this pandemic. Interim CEO Deb Bunting says no action is too small to help in the fight against hunger. She says it starts with awareness, education, advocacy, and support.

Visit a food drive or maybe even host your own. Bunting says even spreading the word about hunger in Oklahoma on social media can make a difference.

The food bank also accepts donations year around.
