Reba McEntire has donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma native made the donation after she learned about the nonprofit organisation's Food for Kids programme in Kiowa, where she went to school.

Although McEntire did not want the amount of the donation to be disclosed, News OK reports that her donation will be able to provide more than 200,000 meals or feed 2,300 families for a week.

Regional Food Bank's executive director Rodney Bivens said: "We are thankful for this generous donation from Reba McEntire. No child should ever have to go to bed with the pains of hunger in their stomach."

McEntire, who co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards with Blake Shelton, was inducted into the Country Music Association's Hall Of Fame under the 'Modern Era Artist' category.

She said at the time: "When I think of my heroes who are in the Country Music Hall of Fame, I am truly humbled to know that I am being inducted."
