The Community Food Bank of Okahoma is teaming up with the City of Tulsa with the assistance from the Tulsa Fire Department to kick off this year’s “Fill the Firehouse” food drive now through Dec. 20. All 30 fire stations throughout the city of Tulsa will be drop-off sites for both food items for the Food Bank and toys for the Toys for Tots program that also runs during the month of December at the fire stations. "In one stop, people can bring both food and toys and help both programs. We hope to raise a significant more food because of the convenience of so many fire stations," Susan Tilkin of the Community Food Bank said. 

It's one way to give back to those in need. For those looking to celebrate the holidays with yummy treats, Chef Jonathan Haring has a recipe for a traditional peppermint bark. The recipe is below:

Peppermint Bark

•Four cups of almond bark chips
•2 cups of chopped peppermints or crushed starlight mints

In a double boiler melt the almond bark.

Fold in the crushed peppermints.

Pour onto a greased cookie sheet to cool at room temperature. Do not chill or the almond bark will collect condensation and become sticky.
