LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Junior League of Lawton brought in more than 2,000 pounds of food to the Lawton Food Bank Saturday after a week-long friendly competition with Wichita Falls. The organization teamed up with the Junior League of Wichita Falls for a "food fight", to see who could collect the most food.

They reached out to the Lawton police and fire department, and other local businesses to set up drop off sights to gather the goods. All week long they have been filling up a donated truck with the food, and they dropped it all off to the Lawton Food Bank on Saturday.
