 We're over halfway to our goal of raising 1 Million Meals for the local hungry by May 28.

On April 4, Arvest Bank announced the beginning of its sixth annual 1 Million Meals campaign, which challenges bank associates, customers and community members to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves by providing at least one million meals to those in need. The bank announced April 27 that the campaign has exceeded 500,000 meals, or halfway to its goal.

Arvest branches throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma have been participating in this initiative by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations. These efforts will continue through May 28, with the intention of reaching one million meals donated to the local communities Arvest serves in time for summer, when many school children do not have access to meals they ordinarily receive at school and when many of our food partners face fundraising challenges.

Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families. Arvest has partnered with more than 65 organizations that will receive all of the nonperishable food and monetary donations made through May 28.

Anyone interested in supporting the 1 Million Meals campaign can drop off nonperishable food items or monetary donations at any local Arvest branch or calling (866) 952-9523 to contribute.
