“What is the essence of life? 
To serve others and to do good.” -Aristotle

Dating back 2,300 years, this Aristotelian Philosophy is proof that giving back to the community is hardly a new concept. Today, volunteering is still a noble act that has a profoundly positive impact on the world around us – from your own backyard to across the globe – and represents the best in all of us.

At Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, we send our heartfelt thanks to our amazing volunteers: corporations, organizations, churches and schools.

Thank you for your time, dedication, energy and resources to feeding the hungry.

We honor you for supporting our mission to end food insecurity for our neighbors in eastern Oklahoma!

We’re thrilled to announce that the Dolese Company will match donations made to Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma marked “volunteer.” Please consider honoring a volunteer today.

Last year more than 12,000 volunteers gave 69,000 hours of service. Those volunteers saved the Food Bank over $1.6 million which were directed into feeding people in need.
