OnCue Express and News 9 are teaming up to fight hunger in Oklahoma this holiday season.

One in six adults and one in four children in our state struggle with hunger. The holiday season brings an even larger need for non-perishable food items to help hungry Oklahomans get the food they need. Currently, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is down 1.7 million pounds of food from this time last year and we need your help!

That’s why News 9 and OnCue are joining forces to help fill the shelves of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and their partner agencies across central and western Oklahoma.

It’s easy to donate!

From December 1-15th, stop by your local OnCue Express location and donate non-perishable food items to help us fill the Regional Food Bank’s semi-truck. The most needed items are canned meat, canned vegetables and fruits, peanut butter, rice and beans.  OnCue locations are open 24 hours so drop by anytime to donate! Participating OnCue Express locations are listed below.

Donate three and your drink is FREE! 

Anyone who makes a donation of three or more food items at an OnCue location will receive a free drink. (Fountain Drink, Coffee or FreezeeCue).
