Tulsa Kitchens Unite !aims to keep local kitchens open, keep workers paid, and keep local families fed. But that is only only one of Chris's jobs. As the ED of Hungry Free Oklahoma he and his team work tirelessly to bring a unified, statewide voice to the issues and solutions surrounding hunger, with a goal to ensure all Oklahomans have access to affordable, nutritious food.
