"Supplies are available for everyone in Moore who has been impacted by the tornado, not just those who have lost their home," said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. "Many of our neighbors have gone without power for nearly a week and lost all the food in their refrigerator. They also need support to stock their shelves with much-needed items."

The Distribution Center is stocked with items such as: food, shovels, gloves, trash bags, safety goggles, paper goods, diapers, personal hygiene products, snacks, packing boxes, water and Gatorade.

The center is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and will continue to serve residents for many months to come.
