Our Cause

Exterior of Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma

Here at EatAroundOKC, we spend a lot of time talking about food. We enjoy food, but we recognize that the opportunity to pursue our interest in food is truly a luxury. We’re blessed beyond measure when we simply have enough to eat, let alone when we are able to choose from so many different dining options.

For many around us, food isn’t a pleasure, it’s a struggle. 500,000 Oklahomans, including one in five children, are at risk of hunger every day. We want to be a part of the solution, but we know our efforts alone could never make a dent in our community’s enormous need. That’s why we support the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. This outstanding organization battles on the front lines of the fight against hunger in Oklahoma. By supporting their efforts, we can all make a real and meaningful difference in the lives of those in need.

EatAroundOKC has made some commitments to the Regional Food Bank and we hope you will too. Here are some ways that you can help.

Advocate
We’re committing to advocate for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. For EatAroundOKC, that means promoting their mission and their opportunities through our communication channels to our audience. But you can advocate for them too. Everyone has an audience with whom they can communicate. Whether it’s large or small, consider helping to spread the word about the Regional Food Bank to those around you.

Volunteer
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the the Regional Food Bank. They have open volunteer hours when anyone can show up and make a meaningful impact just by being available to help. I plan to be a part of volunteering with other members of my family. I hope you will too. Perhaps we’ll even organize an EatAroundOKC volunteer night from time to time. Open volunteer hours at the Regional Food Bank are:

  • Weekdays from 9am to Noon and 1pm to 4pm
  • Thursday Evenings from 6pm to 9pm
  • Saturdays from 9am to Noon and 1pm to 4pm

For more information about volunteering, please visit their volunteer page or contact volunteer@regionalfoodbank.org.

Donate
Of course, every organization needs money. One thing we love about Regional Food Bank is that they operate in an extremely efficient manner. Their administrative costs are less than 4% and every dollar donated provides five meals to those in need! EatAroundOKC has committed to donate 20% of the net proceeds generated by our EatAroundOKC Deals program to the Regional Food Bank. We hope you’ll consider donating to the Regional Food Bank as well. You can give online by visiting this web page.
