Nice cans

I was can #1,248. Let me know what your can number is, for a good cause!

Are you hungry right now? If you're reading this at your computer, I'm willing to wager you've also eaten a few meals today. Here's the thing: Some people haven't. Nor do they have the means to do so. 

Allens Veggies launched an awesome campaign (“I Yam What I Yam, Donate a Can”) to help combat hunger. It will run through Halloween, and the goal is to reach 3,000 cans. Pairing with local food banks (Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma), bolstered by the wonders of social media, one can of Popeye Spinach for every new Allens Veggies Facebook fan.

Since you're at your computer already, why not hop on over to Allen's Facebook and “like” it?

Food for thought


Gazette staff
While you’re scarfing down your Christmas goose this week — what, you don’t eat goose? — consider this sobering stat: One in every four Oklahoma children goes to bed hungry.

Help wanted

The holiday hangover contributes to a trying time for metro nonprofits.


Greg Horton
Christmas might be the season for giving, but the period that follows can be challenging for local charities, with many seeing a sharp decline in volunteers and donations.

Out of the box

The Regional Food Bank collaborated with a local chef to craft convenient stovetop meals.


Kelley Chambers
In an episode of The Simpsons, Marge Simpson prays to God that if the town is spared from an impending nuclear meltdown, then the next time a food drive comes along, she will give the poor something they’d actually like to eat, and not just old cans of lima beans and pumpkin mix.

A vital resource

The new food resource center at the City Rescue Mission is more than a traditional food pantry.


Dawn Watson
For some Oklahomans, having a job doesn’t mean the end of hunger.
