OnCue donates non-perishable food items and funds to pantries across the state of Oklahoma and Houston, Texas.
OnCue collected $60,236 in non-perishable items from stores to distribute to local food banks and other high-impact community organizations this year, along with $19,713 in monetary donations for specially labeled sales items in stores.
The largest recipient was the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, which received over 3,500 pounds, the equivalent to 2,916 meals for those in need. The organization also received over $14K in financial support through the sale of select wines at OnCue stores.
“Our partnership with OnCue helps make a tremendous impact in the lives of Oklahomans living with hunger,” said Stacy Dykstra, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “The Regional Food Bank is very grateful to benefit from the innovative work of our friends at OnCue.”
Our Daily Bread, a food resource center in OnCue’s hometown of Stillwater, Okla., received over $11K worth of food products and $5,706 in financial support.
“We love working with our local food banks to help feed, educate, and advocate for those in our communities living with hunger,” said Laura Aufleger, President of OnCue. “We know that Oklahoma and Texas have some of highest rates of food scarcity in the nation, which pushes us to continue to look for new ways to expand our impact. This year we even included support through the sale of select wines in our stores. Thank you to all our customers who support these programs with their purchases!”
Starting Jan. 1, 2023, the sale of reusable fountain cups under the OnCue Gives program will benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and Our Daily Bread through the end of March 2023. For each cup purchased, 50 cents will be donated.
