OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH)--Feed the Children, a nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, hit the road Tuesday morning just after 8:00 a.m. with five semi-trucks full of non-perishable food, household essentials, books and toys. 

The items will be delivered to community partners in five cities in 24 hours and will be distributed to 2,000 Oklahoma families as part of the organization's annual No Hunger Holidays campaign. 

According to a press release from the organization, 5.6 million households with children have struggled to put enough food on the table in the past seven days. 

Feed the Children is partnering with Prospect Church in northeast Oklahoma City to help families this holiday season. 

Families attending the distribution events will receive the following items: 

  • A 25-pound box of shelf-stable food such as canned vegetables, cereal, peanut butter, pasta and macaroni & cheese
  •  A 15-pound box of hygiene items such as toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and deodorant
  •  Children’s books and toys
