1 can = 1 pound of food

$1 = 6.5 pounds of food at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma

1 in 4 children will go to bed hungry in Oklahoma

Two Casady student organizations are hosting a food drive to help address a grim state statistic that one in four children in Oklahoma struggles with hunger.

Join the Youth in Action in the Community (YAC) and Youth LEADOKCasady in making a positive difference in the community by donating canned goods and monetary gifts to the Casady Cans Do Food Drive, hosted Nov.1-7.
Each Division is collecting canned goods in hopes of exceeding last year’s results of 5,779 cans. Additionally, the Primary, Lower and Upper Divisions are collecting monetary donations and want to surpass last year's total of $1,016.87.    
                                                                                                                             Please bring your donations to your child’s Division where YAC students will be assisting with the collection from 7:15 a.m. to 7:55 a.m., Nov. 1-7. Follow daily results here(
