 Our Mission

Filling Tummies enhances the lives of underprivileged mothers, infants, children, the elderly & extended families by providing food, formula, and basic resources.

Our organization supports the community by feeding children, adults, and seniors of all races, and ages across Oklahoma City and surrounding areas. We focus on Food Deserts, and at risk areas where people are suffering from food insecurity. We provide food to those who would otherwise go without. Our focus is to provide as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible to support community health.

Our objective is to feed the hungry & provide nutritious food to those in need. We devote extra effort to students whose parents have limited resources and sometimes forced to choose between paying a bill and purchasing food. We are also mindful of the elderly who must choose between food and medication.

About Us

Our board, established March 2017, is comprised of mothers and one junior board member who take pride in supporting children, their needs, and their nutrition. We understand that food is a necessity and Oklahomans should not worry about where their next meal will come from. We believe it should not matter how much money their parents make, or where they live…clearly everyone deserves food and sometimes unforeseen circumstances happen. We want Oklahomans to maintain a standard of basic nutrition and health, so they can learn, thrive, and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

Its safe to say that most will be shocked to know that how many Oklahomans go to bed hungry! We were more than shocked, we were saddened. HERE are the hard cold facts:
Oklahoma ranks among the worst 10 states in terms of very low food security, according to the USDA, Prevalence of
household-level food insecurity and very low food security, average 2012-2014. Oklahoma is consistently among the
hungriest states in the nation.
• 1 in 4 Oklahoma children is at risk of going to bed hungry, according to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap 2014 Report.
• 1 in 6 Oklahoma seniors (age 60+) struggle with hunger, according to AARP’s Food Security Among Older Adults 2015 Report.
• 17 percent of our statewide population is considered food insecure, leaving 652,090 Oklahomans (more than 250,000
children) unsure where they will get their next meal, according to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap 2014 Report.
