Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
The mission of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma is to feed the hungry of Eastern Oklahoma through a network of Partner Programs and engage communities in ending hunger. Their vision is food security, with dignity, for all eastern Oklahomans.
The Food Bank is the largest private hunger relief organization in eastern Oklahoma. They provide food and other donated goods to 450 Partner Programs in 24 counties of eastern Oklahoma. These programs include emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs and senior citizen centers. They provide more than 346,000 meals each week to people struggling with hunger. During fiscal year 2015, the Food Bank distributed more than 21.5 million pounds of food.
Periodically, New Haven organizes groups that go to the Food Bank to help sort and repackage various kinds of food.
