Grocery store bags childhood hunger

Uptown Grocery Co. and its customers donated $10,000 to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids programs. As part of Uptown’s annual “Let’s Bag Hunger” event, food bank volunteers assisted customers with their groceries and collected donations for the cause.

This year’s gift will feed more than 50 children for an entire school year.

The Food for Kids program provides food to chronically hungry elementary, middle and high school children.

For more information, go to regionalfoodbank.org or call 972-1111.
