Oklahoma Children's Hospital OU Health Offers Free Meals for Children this Summer
As part of its commitment to leading health care and improving the lives of all children in the community, Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health, in cooperation with Sodexo,will be participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) during summer break, June 1 to July 31, 2022.

Through the Kids Eat Free program, meals are provided at lunch during the week at no cost to children 18 years of age and younger.

SFSP is similar to the National School Lunch Program and ensures children continue to receive adequate nutrition when school is out for summer break.

The evidence is clear that adequate nutrition is crucial to build a foundation for a lifetime of good health, and Kids Eat Free is a way we support that goal.”
