A little more about the history and origin of Cookie’s Thanksgiving.

Posted by:

Cookie’s Thanksgiving
“The next year I wanted to do more and Jim suggested I get in touch with this fascinating, energetic, compassionate, go-getter named Cookie Arbuckle at Other Options, Inc. Friends Food Pantry. Her exact words, in that breathy, high-pitched voice, were “you wanna do what? Oh my gosh, yes!” So off we ran.”

Just a snippet from Scotty Irani on the origin of Cookie’s Thanksgiving. It’s an honor to carry on Cookie’s legacy.

Yesterday at the Regional Food Bank PAC Conference we paid tribute to RODNEY W. BIVENS, who is the founder and executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Soon we will be saying farewell to him as he is retiring in 3 months. I personally cannot express enough gratitude for what this man and his staff have accomplished since opening the food bank.
