Iron Gate seeks donations to help families struggling with food insecurity this summer | News

TULSA, Okla. — Iron Gate, a local nonprofit, is seeking donations from the community to help families struggling with food insecurity this summer.

Iron Gate said when the school year ends and students go home, the need for food increases.

The organization said families are facing dwindling resources due to the pandemic, rising food costs and now Oklahoma has dropped its Summer EBT program.

Iron Gate said they are ready to meet that need and are asking for the community’s support to ensure every family has a “hunger-free summer.”

With a gift of $35, Iron Gate can provide food for a family.

The organization said last week their food pantry provided food to 1,099 households.

Donations made to Iron Gate’s No-Hunger Summer will be matched by an anonymous donor.
