Community Food Bank is Providing Warehouse & Truck Driving Support to Help with the Ongoing Tornado Relief Efforts

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s George Fahrman is in Oklahoma to help the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma with tornado relief duties.  Fahrman, Food Bank Transportation Coordinator and CDL driver began work on May 29th in the Moore, Oklahoma area.


Feeding America, a network of member food banks, sent out an appeal for help for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and their relief efforts following the devastating tornado on May 20, 2013.  They had equipment and food supplies, but lacked truck drivers.  Bill Carnegie, Community Food Bank CEO asked for volunteers from the staff to assist in Oklahoma and George Fahrman stepped forward.

Fahrman’s current duties involve driving semi-truck loads of food and water from the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to a food bank, local churches and other distribution points in Moore.

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona has as history of helping in times of disaster.  The Community Food Bank assisted with disaster relief efforts by supplying staff and equipment during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008.
