LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - As part of their "Million Meals Campaign," Arvest Bank held an event where they packaged 16,992 meals in just 25 minutes. 

That food will be given to food banks in Lawton, Chickasha, Duncan, Elgin and Walters.

Marketing Specialist for Arvest Lindsay Roman says they actually moved the annual event up this year to better line up with the time those less fortunate need help the most.

"We actually have started doing it during this time frame because with summer coming, school is out so they're going to need those foods to feed the children," she said.

Roman says  2017 marks the 7th year of the campaign  locally.  To date, Arvest has packaged nine-point-six million meals and raised one-point-six million dollars for those in need.
