Nearly $15,000 donated through OKFB’s Community Food Assistance Matching Program

County Farm Bureau organizations along with Oklahoma Farm Bureau donated $14,735 to community food pantries, food banks and other food assistance programs through the OKFB Community Food Assistance Matching Program during the month of April.

The program connects county Farm Bureaus with their communities through donations to local food assistance programs. OKFB matched county donations up to $100, doubling the impact of each gift.

The program serves as an opportunity for farmers and ranchers to help members of their local communities through the very products our state’s agriculturalists grow and raise each and every day.

Thirty-eight county organizations and three county Women’s Leadership Committees answered the call to battle food insecurity in their local communities.
