9/22/20 OKCPS Now Offering Supper and a Snack at Curbside Meal Pickup Sites
(Oklahoma City, OK) - Thanks to an additional waiver from the USDA, OKCPS is excited to now be able to offer supper and a snack at our meal sites, along with breakfast and lunch. Earlier this month, the district received a USDA waiver which allowed OKCPS to be able to serve meals at no cost to any child, under the age of 18, without proof of enrollment or ID.
This means that families can make one stop at their local school and pick up meals that feed each child in their home for an entire day, at no cost. Breakfast, lunch, supper and the snack are all nutritionally balanced to meet the needs of growing children. Meals are available at all OKCPS sites from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
“It is so important during these unprecedented times to ensure kids are being fed. We are so excited to be able to provide an entire day’s worth of nutritionally balanced meals, and a snack, to all children 18 and under in the community,” said School Nutrition Services Director, Shonia Hall. “We also want to remind families that meal service is not just for low-income families and that participating actually helps keep the meal program funded. We don’t ever want our families to think they are taking a meal from another child who may need it more because that is not the case. Our staff loves helping save caregivers time by removing the stress of preparing meals.”
