Together, we can work to end hunger.

Who We Are

Hunger Free Oklahoma works to bring a unified, statewide voice to the issue and solutions surrounding hunger, with a goal to ensure all Oklahomans have access to affordable, nutritious food. Hunger Free Oklahoma holds the core belief that hunger is solvable, unnecessary, and unjust, and it impacts everyone living in Oklahoma.

At Hunger Free Oklahoma, we commit to promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging in all aspects of our work. We believe that everyone should have access to nourishing food and are working to ensure all Oklahomans of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, ages, abilities, and socioeconomic statuses can access three meals a day, every day. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all individuals, and we value people’s unique experiences and diverse cultural perspectives. We are committed to continually learning and growing in our efforts to create a more just and equitable society, and we invite everyone to join us in this important work.

Long-term Impacts Take Long-term Work

I recently spoke on the value of systems change and advocacy to a group of nonprofit leaders convened by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. I was recognized with an innovation award, which was an acknowledgement of HFO’s staff and partner’s ability to creatively implement original approaches to fighting hunger in our state. I noted that the most important step for innovation is scaling. If it is not scalable, then an innovation is not a solution.
