Last June, the Oklahoma Food Banks and the Conservation Partnership joined together to fight hunger while conserving natural resources. Through Farm to Food Bank, a pilot project that implements practices that increase the health of soil, Oklahoma farmers volunteered to plant and donate up to eight acres of cover crops to the Oklahoma Food Banks. Over the last year, nearly 7,000 pounds of fresh produce were harvested, providing 5,812 meals to chronically hungry children, seniors on fixed income and families working to put food on the table.
