Arvest Bank and the Northwest Arkansas Naturals are working together to kick off  a "1 Million Meals" campaign to help feed those who are hungry.

In September, Arvest Bank will launch its annual campaign, a two-month effort to collect donations to provide more than 1 million meals to partnering food banks in the 90 communities Arvest operates in across Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas.

To help Arvest Bank reach that goal and get the campaign started, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals are offering free Naturals’ game tickets to anyone who donates either $5 or 10 individual food items at the main gate of Arvest Ballpark before the 2013 Naturals’ home games between Aug. 26 – 29.

Residents wanting to take part should bring $5 or 10 non-perishable food items to the ballpark gates between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. and exchange them for a ticket for than evening’s game.
