LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Thousands of lunches will be packed during Arvest Bank's 'Feed the funnel' event at Western Hills Church of Christ.

Volunteers are going to try to pack as many meals as they possibly can. The goal is 14,500 meals in only 60 minutes. It's all part of Arvest Bank's 1 Million Meals campaign to feed the hungry in a four-state area.

The 1 Million Meals campaign started April 4 and will continue until May 28. Arvest has surpassed their 1 million goal for the last five years, and had a total of 1.6 million in 2015.

    Grass fire sparks near HWY 7 Comanche/Stephens County line

    Several crews responded to a series of fires along Highway 7 near the Comanche/Stephens County line.  Crews still have not determined how they started, but they suspect the fires were ignited by a vehicle that could have been inadvertently dragging a chain, or a trailer that was sending out sparks. Firefighters were able to get it under control and keep it from spreading too far.
