Established in 1994. the Jenks Community Food Bank is a 501(c)3 organzation and is run by a volunteer Board of Directors who meet monthly.
The mission of the food bank is to provide food and necesities as available to individuals and families within the Jenks Public School Distict who need assistance.
In operation since 1994, the JCFB was initially begun by an Eagle Scout and was housed at First Christian Church.
To keep from duplicating services, area churches were recruited to join together to better serve those in need.
Originally housed in a small storage closet, the operation moved to the former Post Office, before relocating to its current location.
New Facility Needed
Currently the Food Bank is located in a small inadequate facility. Due to the lack of space, clients must wait out in the elements before receiving groceries. Most food has to be housed off-site, which is less than ideal.
Special work days are necessary to transport food to restock shelves for weekly operation. To help out, sign up to be added to our email distribution list:
