On Wednesday, April 14, Reasor’s will host the second annual Spring for Meals fund and food drive benefiting the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and its network of 350 Partner Agencies in eastern Oklahoma.
All 17 store locations will participate in the drive that will continue until May 4. Customers have the opportunity to either purchase $15 bags of nutritious food in-store or online for donation, use donation cards at the register or online at reasors.com where customers can add $1, $5 or $10 to their order. Funds can also be donated through the Food Bank’s website, okfoodbank.org. The bags include most needed items like canned tuna, peanut butter, jelly, rice, canned beans, fruits, soups, macaroni and cheese, and pinto beans.
“The Food Bank is a long-time partner with Reasor’s and we are looking forward to continuing this spring tradition,” said Amanda Russell, marketing and advertising director for Reasor’s. “Reasor’s is here for our fellow Oklahomans, and we are committed to providing help to those who need it most.”
“Spring is typically the time of year when the Food Bank begins getting ready for the additional need of summer meals,” said Regan Leake, development manager for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. “For children and families struggling to get by, circumstances like layoffs and health issues during the pandemic have expanded the need for food. We thank Reasor’s for their commitment to fighting hunger in eastern Oklahoma.”The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma delivers food to clients through its network of 350 Partner Agencies.
