The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma wants to assure residents that food assistance is available.
Anyone in need of food assistance should visit rfbo.org/get-help to find a nearby food pantry. The Regional Food Bank recommends that residents call a pantry before visiting to confirm operating hours and if there are any requirements such as presenting a photo ID. People can also call 405-972-1111 during work hours for assistance. For after hours, 2-1-1 can also provide information about food pantries.
The Regional Food Bank also encourages residents who are facing food insecurity to apply for SNAP assistance. The federal food assistance program provides monthly assistance with groceries. The Regional Food Bank can assist individuals with the application at rfbo.org/SNAP or call 405-600-3168.
