As part of the Department of the Interior, Feds Feed Families campaign that began on June 1 and ran through August 29, Chickasaw National Recreation Area employees donated over 150 pounds of non-perishable food to the local food bank here in Sulphur. The donation was made on Thursday, September 13 at the Faith Center/Harvest Basket chapter of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The Faith Center/Harvest Basket provides assistance to approximately 150 local families each month. The overall food insecurity rate in Oklahoma (people who do not consistently receive 3 meals each day) is at 17.7% and the food insecurity rate for children in Oklahoma is 26.6%. The staffs' donations will all stay here in Sulphur to assist local families.
