Arvest is excited to kick off our 14th annual Million Meals campaign, a two-month long initiative to raise money to feed local communities while also raising awareness about food insecurity. 

Let's help find the right loan for you.

The campaign, which runs through May 31, will benefit 85 community food partners in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas. Every dollar raised through the Million Meals initiative provides up to five meals for local, hungry families. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Arkansas ranked 1st, Oklahoma 6th, Missouri 10th and Kansas 34th among the most food-insecure states in the nation based on average rates from 2020-2022. 

More than 17% of U.S. households with children under age 18 experienced food insecurity in 2022, according to the USDA. The timing of the Million Meals campaign coincides with an expected increased need during the summer months when many children don’t have the benefit of free meals at their schools. 

Last year, the Million Meals campaign raised more than 2.29 million meals through monetary donations made directly to the bank’s local food partners. Since the campaign began in 2011, more than 22.9 million meals have been donated through more than $4.1 million collected.
