Arvest Provides More than 2.4 Million Meals

Arvest Bank launched its annual Million Meals initiative to fight hunger in the four-state region the bank serves two months ago. Today, the bank announced that with the help of customers and community members, it has exceeded the campaign goal by raising a record total of 2.4 million meals in the fight against hunger. This is the second consecutive year for a record total of meals raised.

Launched in 2011, Arvest’s Million Meals campaigns have raised a nine-year total of 16,068,971 meals, which includes more than $2.8 million in funds given directly to the bank’s dozens of local food partners.

This year’s campaign total of 2,468,873 meals was made possible through donations from the bank, Arvest associates, customers and community members through fundraisers, events and nonperishable food drives in all Arvest branches throughout April and May. With summer here, the success of the campaign is especially meaningful because many schoolchildren will be without the meals they ordinarily receive at school.

The bank’s decision to provide one million meals was based on the fact hunger is an issue in every community it serves. In 2017, 11.8 percent of American households were food-insecure, meaning they had difficulty at some time during the year providing enough food for all their members due to a lack of resources.

In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes produced its first-ever “World’s Best Banks” list based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 40,000 bank customers across the world. Participants were asked to identify all banks where they have opened checking or savings accounts; they were then asked to rate the banks in the following areas: trust, terms & conditions, customer services, digital Services, and financial advice.

A total of 415 banks in 23 different countries received the distinction, with 60 of those based in the United States. On average, each bank recognized received 100 customer evaluations.

Arvest ranked 16th on the list of U.S. banks. The full list and an accompanying article can be found here on the Forbes website.

This honor is the first Arvest has received from Forbes in 2019. Forbes named Arvest one of “America’s Best Large Employers” in both 2017 and 2018, as well as one of “America’s Best Employers for Women” and one of Arkansas’ “Best-In-State Banks” in 2018.
