OnCue Fights Hunger with $45,000 Donation

April 8, 2019

Stillwater, OK (April 8, 2019) – OnCue recently donated over $45,000 of non-perishable food and personal care products to local charities.

The donations were directed to several local food banks, pantries and soup kitchens. A large portion, 5,090 pounds, of assorted grocery products went to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

"We are so very grateful for our partnership with our friends at OnCue Express," said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. "Their ongoing commitment has helped to provide thousands of meals for our friends and neighbors struggling with hunger in central and western Oklahoma."

According to the nonprofit, one in four children in Oklahoma has inconsistent access to healthy food, and Oklahoma is the sixth hungriest state in the nation.

“One of OnCue’s core values is being a good neighbor in the communities where we live and work,” said Scott Minton, Director of Business Development at OnCue. “It was extremely gratifying to visit every OnCue, collecting more than 5000 pounds to deliver to area food banks!”

While most of what OnCue donates is packaged food items, it also gives personal care products. In OnCue’s hometown, the Stillwater Public School’s Pioneer Pantry is a regular recipient of OnCue product donations. The pantry provides public school children access to basic hygiene items to help eliminate barriers that can affect students’ education.

“Because of the donations from OnCue, we are able to keep our shelves stocked with items for students in need,” said Robin Johnson, Pioneer Pantry manager. “Necessities like hygiene and grooming products, laundry items and other household basics are staples in our pantry and are a life saver to many students in need. We are so appreciative of OnCue and their ongoing support of The Pioneer Pantry and the students that we serve.”
