OKCPS is transitioning to our Summer Meal Program, beginning Wednesday, May 13. Summer meals will be available at 23 sites on weekdays through Tuesday, June 30, excluding Memorial Day (May 25). The district will provide “Grab & Go” breakfast and lunch at no cost under the USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) to individuals aged 18 and under. The district will offer a “hot meal” curbside option at a number of our sites during the Summer Meal Program and both breakfast and lunch can be picked up at the same time. Meal-site locations and times have changed. To learn more, please visit: www.okcps.org/summermealservice.

WHAT: Grab & Go Meal Options: Breakfast and lunch will be available for individuals 18 years old and under at no cost under the USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Both meals can be picked up at the same time.

HOW: Meal Pick-Up: All meal pick-ups will occur outside schools or at regional locations via a District vehicle. Look for OKCPS signage. No students or families will be allowed in the building.

Families can pick up meals using the designated “walk-up” line or by using the drive-thru service at each meal site. We ask that all families continue to practice social distancing at all times while picking up meals.

WHO: Individuals age 18 and under. IDs, proof of residence or proof of enrollment are not required.
