Tulsa Kitchens Unite
From Amy Henry
Tulsa Area United Way provides collaboration funding to Hunger Free Oklahoma. Hunger Free Oklahoma sponsored Tulsa Kitchens Unite program, which was a 12-week program serving 30,000 meals per week during the COVID-19 shutdown. This program was from April through June 2020 and they partnered with locally owned restaurants/caterers (with the ability to produce pre-prepared and refrigerated/frozen to-go style meals) and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to provide free meals to families. The program goals were keeping local kitchens open, keeping workers paid, and keeping local families fed.
