FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arvest Bank announced in early April the beginning of its eighth annual 1 Million Meals initiative, which challenges bank associates, customers and community members to fight hunger in the more than 120 communities the bank serves by providing meals to those in need. Today, the bank announced the campaign has exceeded one million meals, reaching the goal with more than three weeks remaining in the campaign.
A total of 1,002,353 meals have been raised.
Arvest branches throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma have been participating in the 1 Million Meals initiative by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations. These efforts will continue through June 2, with the donations given to the local communities Arvest serves later in the month.
Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for local, hungry families.
