Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma Offers Free Lunch and Snacks to Kids During the Holidays

Many children go hungry during the holiday season once school is on break. Kids who rely on school lunches for food have limited access to good meals while school is closed, and as a result, instead of eating well during the holiday season, they go hungry.

To reach out to these kids and provide them with free, nutritious meals while school is on break, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is partnering with 10 feeding sites around the city. Children can go to any one of those locations to receive a good meal, as well as mentoring and teaching.

The 10 sites that have partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma are Camp Village YMCA, Neighborhoods in Action, Salvation Army B&GC, St. Jude Missionary Baptist, McKinley Park, I Can Family Center, Downtown YMCA, North Side YMCA, Northwest Optimist, and Urban League.

Free lunches and afternoon snacks will be given to kids from December 18 to January 3, except on Christmas and New Year’s Day.
