1 MILLION MEALS CAMPAIGN EXCEEDS GOAL

12 Nov
In early September, Arvest Bank launched its 1 Million Meals initiative to fight hunger in the 90 communities the bank serves.  Late last week the bank announced
 it exceeded the campaign goal by raising over 1,384,000 meals. The campaign total of 1.3 million meals was made possible through donations from the bank, Arvest employees, customers and local residents through in-branch fundraisers and nonperishable food drives. It also exceeds 1.2 million meals raised in 2011, the first year of the 1 Million Meals campaign.
 
In central Arkansas, the Arkansas Rice Depotwas chosen to receive donations from the 1 Million Meals campaign and 115, 393 meals total were raised for them.
 
The campaign has wrapped up just in time for the holidays, helping to meet the increased need that food banks and hunger organizations face this time of year.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 2011 report on household food security, nearly 49 million Americans are unable to get the nutritious food they need on a regular basis.
 
Congratulations to Arvest for a successful 1 Million Meals campaign!
