Devon Energy recently collected a record 6,500 cans of food and $2,000 cash during their annual food drive at their Midland office.
The company says the donations are sorely needed.
"We are in a critically low food shortage in the West Texas Food Bank due to cutbacks from the USDA, due to there just not being as much surplus of food," Libby Campbell of the West Texas Food Bank told Big 2. "And also there's just a higher need right now in our community."
Campbell adds that the cash donation alone will prepare 8,000 meals.
Devon Energy also says they are challenging other oilfield companies to match their donations this year.
