TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Food on the Move, Go Fresh, BAMA Companies, and the USDA are partnering up to hand out thousands of pounds of produce and groceries to Tulsa Public School teachers and staff.
Just in one day, 2,500 families received free food.
"This is amazing. It helps fill in the gaps with everything going on, and it's just a relief and nice to know they're thinking of us," said Susan Rott, a teacher at Key Elementary.
She said teachers and staff are struggling too right now, and having this event means the world.
"We still have to pay our bills like everybody else. Being at home is really hard, not having that second job or things to fill that gap," said Rott.
Kevin Harper with Food on the Move said teachers are constantly giving so it was time for them to step up and help.
"I think sometimes people who have such a servant heart like teachers they don't even think about helping themselves. They're always out giving. So, it's important for people to say, 'hey, how can I help teachers?'" said Harper.
The drive-thru giveaways will continue every Thursday till the end of June.
