Managers from OK Foods recently distributed backpacks filled with school supplies and nap mats to every kindergarten student at Heavener Elementary School. The supplies were purchased from funds raised at an OK Foods sponsored chicken dinner on July 29. More than 600 OK Foods employees from the local community participated in the event.

“OK Foods is proud to partner with the local Heavener community to support children,” said OK Foods CEO Trent Goins. “Our motto at OK Foods is to nourish the world, which goes beyond just food. We believe that education is essential to building a healthy community.”

Additional funds raised at the July event were used to purchase extra supplies for the school.

Founded more than 80 years ago, OK Foods has evolved from a livestock and poultry feed manufacturer to one of the world’s largest fully-integrated chicken producers.
