OKLAHOMA CITY (June 12, 2014) — The USDA Summer Food Service Program provides nutritious meals to low-income children for free by opening up cafeterias between school years.
All children under the age of 18 who show up at participating sites will be given meals. Many sites, but not all, are schools; some are operated by nonprofits.
The program is administered by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
