On February 20, 2015, several staff members of Phillips Theological Seminary, volunteered at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. The mission of the Food Bank is to feed the hungry of eastern Oklahoma through a network of partner programs and engage the community in ending hunger. They are the largest private hunger-relief organization in eastern Oklahoma.
Phillips volunteers helped sort donated food items that will be distributed by more than 450 partner programs located in the 24 counties of eastern OK, including Tulsa. The Food Bank provides 275,000 meals per month to the hungry.
