EDMOND — Rita Marsh with Gamma Zeta, of Edmond, a local chapter of the philanthropic organization Epsilon Sigma Alpha, donated time and money to provide Project 66 with a scale to weigh food to be given to needy families.
Project 66 is a nonprofit, faith-based ministry providing food and clothing to families in need in Edmond, Arcadia and surrounding areas.
The scale will cut time spent on food processing by 75 percent.
The mission of Project 66 is to feed people most likely to be undernourished, such as children, the elderly and working families facing unusually difficult economic times.
The goal is to provide each family with enough food for at least a week. Project 66 also provides seasonal clothing and shoes.
Project 66 is a Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma-sponsored food pantry.
