Lawton Food Bank – 1 Million Meals Food Partner

Friday, September 04 at 05:35 AM
Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank is proud to partner with 50+ organizations, including Lawton Food Bank, in the bank’s fifth annual 1 Million Meals initiative to raise one million meals for the food insecure in the 120+ communities the bank serves.    

WHO: Lawton Food Bank. Connect with them on Facebook.* 

WHERE: Serves Lawton, Okla., and surrounding communities.

WHAT: Founded in 1985 by Carter and Marilyn Crane, the Lawton Food Bank has grown into the largest emergency food organization in the southwest Oklahoma region. In the beginning, the food bank simply set food outside for those in need to come by and take home. Today the food bank provides individuals and families enough food to last about 10 days, and they may return every six weeks, if necessary. In 2014, the Lawton Food Bank provided food to an average of almost 1,000 families each month.

The Lawton Food Bank provides food to low income residents of southwest Oklahoma, with the majority of their receivers being senior citizens and the disabled. “It is not our intent to be anyone’s sole source of food. We’re just here to help families and those who aren’t able to work through difficult times,” said Jeri Mosiman, executive director of Lawton Food Bank. 

Running with only two full-time staff members, three part-time staff members and no financial assistance from the state or city government, the food bank relies heavily on volunteers for help and solely on donations for providing food. 

WHEN: Arvest Bank is accepting donations of both food and funds Sept. 2 – Oct. 31, 2015. Donations will be distributed to local food partners. 

WHY: Food-insecure people report needing an additional food budget of $16.28 per person per week. (that’s a 3 percent increase since 2012), according to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap 2015.*

HOW: You can make a donation through any of the following methods:
  • Donate via Phone – Customers can make a $1 (or more) donation by calling (866) 952-9523.
  • Donate via Mail – Mail a check to Arvest Bank Operations, ATTN: 1MM, P.O. Box 799, Lowell, AR 72745. Include 1 Million Meals in the memo line of the check.
  • Purchase a Paper Can – Purchase a 1 Million Meals paper can for $1 at any Arvest Bank branch. Each paper can purchased funds five meals. Donations of larger amounts also accepted.
  • Drop Off Food Items – All Arvest Bank branch locations will be accepting nonperishable food items. Donated items will be delivered to local food partners for distribution.

Arvest Bank is proud to partner with 50+ organizations, including the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, in the bank’s fifth annual 1 Million Meals initiative to raise one million meals for the food insecure in the 120+ communities the bank serves.    

WHO: Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.* Connect with them on Facebook* and Twitter.*

WHERE: Serves 24 counties in eastern Oklahoma.

WHAT: The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma began in 1981 and is now the largest private hunger-relief organization in eastern Oklahoma. Currently, the food bank works with a network of 450 partner programs throughout eastern Oklahoma. These facilities include emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, after-school programs and senior citizen centers. The food bank and their partner programs provide more than 335,000 meals a week to those struggling with hunger in our communities. 

More than 21 million pounds of food was distributed last year to the hungry in Tulsa, Okla., and the surrounding areas through these programs. Every partner program within a 35-mile radius comes to the Tulsa location to pick up their orders and partner programs located within 35 miles of McAlester, Okla., pick up food at the food bank’s southern branch. Those outside that perimeter come to one of 12 drop-off sites to pick up food, including towns like Hugo, Muskogee, Tahlequah and Vinita.

WHEN: Arvest Bank is accepting donations of both food and funds Sept. 2 – Oct. 31, 2015. Donations will be distributed to local food partners.

Arvest Kicks Off Fifth Year of Fighting Hunger

Wednesday, September 02 at 09:00 AM
Category: Arvest News

We invite associates, customers and the communities we serve to work to provide one million meals to the local people who are food insecure.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arvest Bank’s 1 Million Meals initiative challenges bank associates, customers and community members to participate in fundraising efforts and nonperishable food drives to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves. The initiative is needed, as 49 million individuals, including 16 million children, are identified as food insecure.**

Arvest Bank kicked off the two-month, bank-wide effort to provide at least one million meals to local, hungry families today, and will continue through Oct. 31. The initiative will conclude just before Thanksgiving, when donations are presented to 59 local organizations who feed the hungry in their communities.

To participate in the 1 Million Meals initiative, customers and community members can drop off nonperishable food items or make monetary donations at any Arvest Bank branch or call (866) 952-9523. Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for those in need.

Each of Arvest Bank’s 59 recipient organizations was selected on a local basis.
