Food for Kids
One in four children is considered food insecure in Oklahoma. The Food for Kids (backpack program) provides nutritious, kid-friendly food to food insecure students to take home on Friday after school. Without this food, many students would return to school on Monday having eaten little or no food on the weekend. St. Stephen’s United Methodist is our main partner for this program.
School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946. The current income guidelines can be found here.
