KOCO News 5: Filling Tummies mobile pantry provides Healthy Food Students

So allow me to introduce you to an amazing organization They’re called Filling Tummies and will tell you how an old school bus and a dream are changing many lives It feels like the ice cream truck, but it is really is full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Some would call this funky-looking Green and blue school bus MAGIC. We have apples, bananas Lisa Blacknoll calls it necessary. One in four kids in Oklahoma Go to bed hungry despite everything that the food bank is doing and despite all the efforts So we’re here to fill the gap and to do our part- and that’s how Filling Tummies was born. Her nonprofit took this old school bus and turned it into a mobile food pantry The group kicking off its efforts this week at this school in Spencer, but they hope to hit up food insecure towns across Oklahoma Providing kids with things that we all take for granted One little girl she had her bag so full and she said this is such a blessing for our family all we have at home is rice and beans producing blessings that go both ways as the Filling Tummies motto says Feeding the body and the soul It’s not only good for the community and for the children, but it’s also good for your own soul.
