“Poverty is a very complicated issue, but feeding a child is not.” -Jeff Bridges
Food-insecurity impacts 1 in 4 Oklahoma children. Many don’t always know where they will get their next meal. This is a particularly difficult time for these kids, as access to school meals becomes limited or non-existent.
This adds further strain to families that are already struggling to put food on the table. For these families, the summer months mean increased food need, along with higher utility costs as they care for children at home.
You can help ensure kids and their families can enjoy their summer instead of worrying about where they’ll find their next meal.
Rural Summer Food Service Program Meals from the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma will deliver shelf-stable meals to partners outside the Tulsa area. This includes sites as far north and east as Vinita and Langley, and as far south as Idabel and Broken Bow.
Breakfasts and Lunches will be distributed at Langley Public Library each weekday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.. This program is free for all children 18 and under and there is no qualifying.
For more information contact the Library at 918-782-4461.
