OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA. — As a partner of the Oklahoma Pork Council and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, Seaboard Foods donated 1,000 lbs of ham to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma in support of Hunger Action Month.
Led by members of the Feeding America network, Hunger Action Month occurs every September to campaign for public action against food insecurity.
“The agricultural community is no stranger to the toll rising food costs can take on individuals and families,” said Blayne Arthur, Oklahoma secretary of agriculture. “The generous donation made by Seaboard Foods will allow many Oklahoma families facing food insecurity to keep nutritious protein on their tables. I commend Seaboard Foods for their generosity and continued dedication to providing Oklahoma and the rest of the world with a delicious and healthy protein.”
The donation will be made available to the Regional Food Bank’s network of partners in 53 counties across Oklahoma.
“We are so grateful to have the support of pork farmers and producers across central and western Oklahoma,” said Stacy Dykstra, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “This donation will help provide much needed protein to Oklahoma families living with hunger.”
