Support our summer meals program to feed hungry kids.

Every child should be able to eat healthy meals throughout the year, but with 60% of Oklahoma students qualifying for free or reduced school lunch programs, many kids go hungry during the summer. Together, we can make sure no family facing hunger goes without food.

Feed kids this summer.

When school is out, our summer meals program makes sure every child has a nourishing breakfast and lunch.

Summer is difficult for food-insecure families.

Oklahoma has opted out of Summer EBT, a program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that provides grocery-buying benefits to low-income families with school-aged children during the summer when kids lose access to the meals they receive at school.

Rising food costs affect families who live paycheck-to-paycheck.

As the cost of food keeps rising, thousands of families with kids face the impossible choice between food and other essentials, such as electricity or medicine, despite the fact that more than half of the families who access food pantries are employed.

We’re determined to significantly increase our summer meals program.

When children lose access to the meals they receive at school, families turn to the Food Bank for help. We’ll work with 600+ community-based feeding partners and school systems throughout eastern Oklahoma to provide more than 200,000 meals to kids.

This summer, children will also receive fresh, healthy meals from the Food Bank’s new state-of-the-art culinary center—meals that nourish kids and give them the energy to play and the strength to ride, jump, and swim.

Help make summer a time for fun, not hunger.

Summertime can be difficult for families facing hunger. Your gift can help us end summer hunger so kids can enjoy summer as it should be.

Provide free meals for kids.

Help feed kids in your community.

Eastern Oklahoma is one of the nation’s most food-insecure areas for children.

Let’s reduce the food-insecurity rate of children.

One in 5 kids in eastern Oklahoma struggles daily with hunger and goes to bed not knowing where their next meal will come from. Your generous support helps the Food Bank pursue our vision to reduce the food-insecurity rate of children from 21% to less than 10%.

Help your neighbors who live paycheck-to-paycheck.

Up to 44% of Oklahoma families lack adequate savings to cover basic expenses if they lose stable income. Hunger affects your neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and even family members.

Recognize the face of hunger.

One in 7 Oklahomans is food insecure, leaving families struggling between paying bills and putting food on the table. Recognizing the face of hunger is the first step toward solving an issue that touches all our lives.

Join our mission to end summer hunger—and let kids be kids.
