The basic premise of the client choice food pantry model is just that – allowing people seeking food assistance to choose for themselves what products they receive. You choose what is best for your family, what you like, and what you like to prepare!
Because of the 26 Feeding America partnerships we have, we are able to offer fresh produce, invaluable proteins, and healthy dairy products, including milk, eggs, cheese, and other items for those with food sensitivities. We are a proud partner agency of the Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.

Individual Client in 2023
Broken Arrow Neighbors picks up from 26 different Feeding America partners 56 times a week. Because of this partnership, BAN has expanded services to three low-income senior apartment complexes, the Broken Arrow Senior Center, and Indian Springs apartment complex for low income families. BAN has also partnered with Arts @ 302’s, Kristin’s Artists of Promise, and the Broken Arrow Tuls Tech campus.

BAN is going carbon neutral
BAN is committed to replace 100% of our cargo vans with electric cargo vans in 2023, made possible with a grant from the OK Department of Commerce. We will use these vans to pick up from our 26 Feeding America partners 52 times each week, helping us feed our neighbors in need.
Prior to the implementation of Neighborhood Curbside pickup, our food waste was over 40%. With client appointments, partnerships in the community, and working with the City of Broken Arrow on composting, food waste is now less than 3%.
In April 2023, BAN was recognized at the White House briefing and press release of their Electric Vehicle Acceleration Challenge for our efforts in transitioning to electric transit vans. Looking toward the future, BAN will be investing in other technologies to become even more carbon neutral.
