Reasor’s Spring for Meals Third Annual Food DrivePosted on April 19th, 2022
On Wednesday, April 20, Reasor’s will host the third annual Spring for Meals fund and food drive benefiting the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and its network of 320 Partner Agencies in eastern Oklahoma.
All 17 store locations will participate in the drive that will continue until May 10. Customers can purchase $15 bags of nutritious food in-store or online. Reasor’s customers can also donate at the register, or when ordering groceries online at reasors.com. 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. “Even though the COVID numbers are declining, the need that inflation and the pandemic created is still evident in families who struggle to get by. 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 320 Partner Agencies. As a member of the national Feeding America network of food banks, they are also trained and prepared to respond to crisis and disaster situations.
