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.
