Important Notice:

Out of an abundance of caution,the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is cancelling ALL volunteer opportunities until further notice. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will update the volunteer page and COVID-19 website once we know when we will reopen our volunteer opportunities.

Volunteers are such a large and valuable piece of the Regional Food Bank puzzle and we miss you. We often state that volunteers are the lifeblood of the organization and your absence during this time has only solidified that statement. We can’t wait for you to join us again.

In place of volunteers, the Regional Food Bank staff are working shifts to continue to prepare emergency food boxes to be distributed to community-based partner agencies in central and western Oklahoma. The staff will continue to operate under the new volunteer model that adheres to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s social distancing guidelines. The Regional Food Bank continues to operate in Disaster Response mode as it works to provide food assistance to Oklahomans who are food insecure and the increasing number of Oklahomans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want to thank you for your dedication to fighting hunger. We will be in touch once we are able to open our Volunteer Opportunities again. In the meantime, please consider becoming a Virtual Volunteer. To learn more about virtual volunteering, please visit. www.rfbo.org/volunteer.

Anyone in need of food assistance should visit rfbo.org/get-help to find a pantry closest to their home. It is recommended to first call the pantry to confirm hours of operations and if any restrictions are in place. They can also call the Regional Food Bank at 405-972-1111 during workdays.


The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma Food & Resource Center was established in 2013. For every $1 donated, the Regional Food Bank and its partners are able to return four meals to Oklahomans in need of food assistance in Moore, South Oklahoma City and Norman.
A Food & Resource Center is a client-choice pantry that allows clients to select their own food, rather than receiving a pre-packed or standard bag of groceries. Food & Resource Centers provide greater access to fresh fruits and vegetables, are open longer hours, and create an environment in which the client is treated with dignity and respect.
In 2018, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma Food & Resource Center distributed the equivalent of more than 1.5 million meals and provided food assistance to 21,139 households. The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma FRC distributed 1,930 Commodities Supplemental Food Program boxes and served as a Summer Feeding Program site.
