Become a better cook by volunteering at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. People can volunteer in the Food Bank’s Culinary Center throughout the week, on Tuesday evenings and the second Saturday of each month. There, you'll be helping Chef Jonathan Haring concoct delicious dishes for the needy. Haring utilizes each and every piece of food that comes into the food bank even the food that might be too ripe to send out. "Peel, dice and freeze them to eat in the fall months," Haring said.
Below are recipes Haring created on Great Day Green Country:Porter Peach Parfait

Summer in Oklahoma usually means one thing: peaches. We’re in the prime of peach season and right now they’re easy to find and affordable. You can purchase peaches at the grocery store or visit a local Farmers’ Market.Event:
