Regional Food Bank Hosts Hunger Action Month Event

September is Hunger Action Month, and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is hosting a month-long campaign to combat hunger and encourage action in the Oklahoma City community. Thanks to a generous offer from The Masonic Fraternity of Oklahoma, Lezlie and David Hudiburg and David Gorham, every donation to Food for Kids throughout the month will be matched up to $150,000.

“The goal of this month-long campaign is to bring awareness to the issue of hunger in communities and encourage Oklahomans to take action,” says Kate Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “Whether it’s volunteering with friends, making a donation or sharing information on social media, we can all make an impact and help our neighbors who are struggling with hunger.”

Oklahoma is the fifth hungriest state in the nation. Most of the clients served by the food bank are chronically hungry children, seniors living on fixed incomes and families struggling to put food on the table.
