Oklahoma Farm Bureau is launching a new OKFB Community Food Assistance Matching Program to connect county Farm Bureaus with their community.
This program encourages county organizations to donate to a local food assistance program, and OKFB will match the donation up to $100.
County Farm Bureaus may donate to their local food bank, food pantry, meals on wheels or other food assistance program to have their donation matched. Whether it is going to the local grocery store to purchase food, hosting a food drive or presenting a monetary donation, OKFB knows community food organizations need help most during these unprecedented times.
Farmers and ranchers across Oklahoma create food, fiber and fuel for people in their communities, and Oklahoma Farm Bureau members understand the importance of giving back to their communities.
County Farm Bureaus can reach out to their local food assistance program to see what items are needed of most to make the county’s donation impact even greater.
When a county Farm Bureau makes a donation, OKFB will match the donation up to $100 and donate to the food assistance program of choice. OKFB will send a separate check to the chosen program.
Counties are asked to inform their field representative before presenting the food or money. Donations must be made by March 31 and submit the form no later than April 9 to receive OKFB’s match.
The Community Food Assistance Matching Program reimbursement form can be found at okfarmbureau.org/applications.
