More than $20,000 was donated to food banks, food pantries and other food assistance programs across Oklahoma by 40 county Farm Bureaus and county Women’s Leadership Committees as a part of Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Community Food Assistance Matching Program.
The program was designed to connect county organizations to their communities by donating to their local food assistance program, which OKFB matched up to $100.
“We are proud so many counties across Oklahoma donated to food assistance programs,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “Farmers and ranchers grow the food, fuel and fiber we all need and continue to step up when people in their communities need assistance the most.”
Thirty-five county Farm Bureaus donated to local food assistance organizations including Caddo, Canadian, Cherokee, Comanche, Cotton, Craig, Creek, Custer, Garfield, Grant, Greer, Haskell, Jackson, Johnston, Kay, Latimer, LeFlore, Lincoln, Logan, McIntosh, Murray, Noble, Okfuskee, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Payne, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Pushmataha, Rogers, Seminole, Texas, Tillman, Washington and Woodward.
Three county WLC also donated to the program including Canadian County WLC, Comanche County WLC, Garfield County WLC and Ottawa County WLC.
The OKFB WLC also contributed to two state level organizations.
