Bank OZK has announced contributions totaling $220,000 to 25 food banks in communities Bank OZK serves across eight states.
Among the recipients is the Harvest Regional Food Bank in Texarkana.
The public health crisis caused by COVID-19 has placed significant demands on food banks.
School closures, unemployment and other factors are driving more individuals to rely on local food banks.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has affected public health and the economic livelihood of so many in our communities. Bank OZK is directing resources to 25 community food banks who have taken swift action to provide higher levels of support and resources,” said Angela Hudson, director of Corporate Responsibility at Bank OZK.
“Local food banks have volunteer and partner resources to acquire and distribute food efficiently to those who need it most. And our experience is that food banks do so much more than feed people; they bring stability, continuity and hope to people in need and build stronger communities, meal by meal,” Hudson said.
Bank OZK’s contributions will provide over 1 million meals and feed approximately 526,219 individuals.
