truck1The Food for Kids Backpack program of the Regional Food Bank
of Oklahoma began in 2003 as an emergency food assistance program.  Children identified by school personnel
receive a nondescript backpack filled with non-perishable, kid friendly food at
no cost to help them through the weekends and school holidays.  Food for Kids currently serves 11,000
chronically hungry, elementary age children in 305 elementary schools across
Oklahoma.   As a result of Food for Kids,
teachers report better school attendance, improved school performance, better
concentration in the classroom, increased self-esteem and reduced signs of
hunger.  Thanks to funds provided by 2011
Edmond Touch-A-Truck, Food For Kids is currently serving 25 Edmond
children.  For more information on The
