Each month a big-rig from the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma delivers more than 2,500 pounds of USDA nutritious foods to Sulphur United Methodist Church. Volunteers distribute the free food boxes to qualified low-income senior citizens. The program currently serves more than 80 seniors here. PHOTO BY MIKE WEST
