“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 added.
Bank OZK’s contributions will provide over 1 million meals and feed approximately 526,219 individuals. The Bank selected 25 local food banks with outstanding records of service in markets Bank OZK serves. Twenty-four of the food banks are regional Feeding America affiliated food banks.
