OKLAHOMA CITY — With many schools across the state winding down for the year, almost 1,400 feeding sites are preparing to welcome children for free summer meals.

The Oklahoma State Department of Education’s summer feeding programs will serve two meals a day while kids are out of school on summer break.

More than 400 sponsors will serve a combination of breakfast and lunch or lunch and a snack at 1,359 sites, including parks, schools, community centers, churches and day camps. Many sites also provide education or recreational programming.

Summer meals are eligible for children 18 and under, as well as for people up to age 21 participating in state education programs for the mentally or physically disabled.

Between May and August 2020, 13.4 million meals were served through the summer feeding program.
