Take a Seat


Join Honorary Chair, Mayor Kathy Taylor and Executive Director Eileen Bradshaw in the Food Bank’s inaugural event, Take A Seat.

“We all have a role to fill in helping hungry children, parents, and grandparents in Oklahoma. Hunger is not something we can ignore.” – former mayor, Kathy Taylor

Take A Seat is a ten-day campaign to help fight hunger in our community.
The basic idea is simple: Get together with friends, family, co-workers, host a festive food and drink-related experience and raise funds to feed people struggling with hunger.
Take A Seat events will be held during September, Hunger Action Month, from:
Friday, September 22 to Sunday, October 1.

“In honor of my mom, Lola Catherine McGarvey, my daughter and I try to find a charity annually to donate to on her birthday —one that would match her zest for life and her compassion for others.  This year—we would like to donate to the Food Bank of Eastern OK—her birthday is Sept 28—and she always shared our table with others…we will share our table on Sept 24 with others to raise funds for others ..but we will match all funds raised at the first 100 registered events—up to $10,000 maximum to help your work. Thanks for all you do—the amazing dedication you put into this work and allowing us to be involved in this important work.”
With gratitude for a full pantry, Kathy
