Rescue, Feed, Connect

Our mission is simple… We believe no baby should go hungry. Every month, more than 1,000 of the tiniest of Oklahoma’s poor and hungry come through these doors with an empty tummy and a glimmer of hope in their eyes. Our first job is to rescue them. We rescue them from their crisis by providing their family with hope, compassion, kindness and love during a stressful time in their lives.

Our second job is to feed them. We provide the basic necessities of life… formula to fill their tummy and diapers for a dry bottom. The nutrition we provide is one of the most important things we do. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 85 percent of brain development occurs during the first three years of life. That means hunger during this critical time of development has life-long negative effects. Even one missed meal may have a negative effect on a child leaving them with educational difficulties that they can never overcome.

And finally we connect our families to other helping agencies in our community. We are a short-term solution for families in need and we don’t want their help to stop with us. Our family services coordinator helps connect them with programs and agencies that can assist with needs such as housing, electric bills, transportation and more.

Please remember, our clients are the babies and babies make no bad decisions. We believe we have the single responsibility to serve the baby no matter what the circumstances are that brings them to us… because no baby should go hungry.
