Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
On Wednesday, February 19, the Tulsa based Made in Oklahoma business, Hunger Buster, donated 2,300 beef sticks to the Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
True to its business model, Hunger Buster donates 25 percent of all products sold at area Reasor’s locations to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Beef sticks, which are used in the Food Bank’s Food for Kids Backpack Program, were delivered to the community by Hunger Buster Vice President of Marketing, Suzanne Meeks. The Backpack Program provides a bag of shelf-stable food to elementary, junior high and high school students at risk of going hungry over weekends and school holidays.
“Hunger Buster is such a great product for our Backpack Program,” said Eileen Bradshaw, executive director of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. “We’re able to provide students with a great source of protein, but also something very nutritious.”
Hunger Buster beef sticks are 100% beef, gluten free, low calorie, low carb, low sugar, and contain no trans fat.
"Reasor’s is a valuable partner of ours, having been supporters of our products and our mission to help feed the hungry with our 25% donation program from the beginning,” said Richard Cranford, owner of QuarterShare LLC. “We are pleased that Reasor's has chosen the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to receive our donation. To provide children with nutritious snacks is a principal priority for our company.”
Through a network of 450 Partner Programs, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma provides more than 275,000 meals a week to those struggling with hunger. Partner Programs include soup kitchen, food pantries, emergency shelters, low-income after school programs and senior citizen centers.
