TULSA, Okla. — Food On the Move is providing free groceries to those in need at the Tulsa Dream Center for the fifth week in a row.

“Today, we will cross over a 100,000 meals. Yes, over a 100,000 meals," Aaron Johnson said.

Their Director, Aaron Johnson tells 2 Works for You, unlike previous weeks, today, they are filling the grocery boxes with more meat, and non perishable items than they normally would.

“We haven’t done it alone, there have been so many people involved," Johnson said. "GKFF, Food On the Move, so many amazing foundations, the food banks, Cherokee Nations...so many people helped us get to where we are now.”

Everything is first come, first serve, and they are making sure they stay safe from the coronavirus by making it a drive through.

Each car receives one box, and volunteers load the food, so no need to leave your vehicle.

Johnson tells 2 Works For You that families really need this, and he's very proud to be making a difference in the Tulsa community.

“Six young kids that were all sitting around together on the floor, they didn’t have a kitchen table," Johnson said. "They were eating some of the meals that they had been given here. The mom started crying, and then I just started crying.”

Last week, the Tulsa Dream Center served over 2,000 families, and are hoping to keep the same pace this week.

As they continue to serve their community, they are asking for non-perishable food donation items.
