Food Distribution Very Successful

On Saturday, 10 am, the senior citizens and the First Baptist Church gathered to distribute a large amount (300 pounds) of frozen chicken strips to people in the Medicine Park area. Many gallons of milk was also available, and the senior citizen center added all of the canned and dry food in their pantry and frozen items in their freezer to the distribution.

When the doors opened at 10 am, people gathered to receive the rations free of charge. The citizens came in a steady stream until all of the food was gone at 12 noon. Church and senior center volunteers filled boxes with the items selected and helped the infirm take the food to their vehicles.

The Association of South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) had made the frozen chicken available to people of the Medicine Park area and to its 8-county area of responsibility in partnership with the Regional Food Bank, after the food bank received a huge donation of meat.

Dairies in the region donated their excess milk.
