'1 Million Meals' Campaign Exceeds Goal

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, (KNWA) - With the help of the community, Arvest Bank has exceeded its goal for this year's '1 Million Meals' campaign and that's why we love living local! 

The initiative was started to fight food insecurity in Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas. 

Through fundraisers, events and food drives, the campaign was able to give more than 2.1 million meals this year. 

"With summer here, the success of the campaign is especially meaningful because many schoolchildren will be without the meals they ordinarily receive at school," the news release states. 

The company will make an announcement revealing how much Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley raised at the Naturals Game on June 19.
