Oklahoma Universities Compete to Help Fight Hunger

The Fall season brings all sorts of holiday food to our tables, from delicious oven-roasted turkeys to pumpkin pies. But for some, Fall may not be the most wonderful time of the year, as many families go hungry despite the upcoming holidays.

One way to help them is by providing them with free food, courtesy of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The Food Bank is continually supporting Oklahoma residents, especially those who are less-fortunate or homeless.

As a way to support the Food Bank, a friendly fundraising competition will be held this year between Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma. Both Universities will put on their own creative efforts to collect items for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

The Fall Food Drive will collect non-perishable items until October 27th to be submitted to the Food Bank and in turn, distributed to those in need. All through-out the respective campuses, there will be collection boxes that will encourage more support from the collective student bodies, school administration and faculty. Those who wish to help can simply deposit canned and bagged food items in the boxes.

There are also other fundraising programs that will solicit more help around the campus. Each university will be hosting various efforts that will make it easy to participate.
