Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
It is the goal of School Nutrition Services to feed all students of OKCPS a nutritious and well balanced meal. Starting in the 2017/2018 school year ALL of OKCPS’ 44,000 students will be able to eat breakfast and lunch for FREE. The meals will be funded through the USDA’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). In doing so we give our students a better opportunity to succeed academically and athletically. Research has shown that students who eat breakfast and lunch on a daily basis increase their attendance, improve their behavior and perform better in school. Another great benefit of CEP is that it will change the perception of the cafeteria and make it a welcoming place for all students, regardless of their socioeconomic status. There is no need to fill out a meal application, a child qualifies for free meal just by being an OKCPS student.
***Note: Student trays are for OKCPS enrolled students only, otherwise, ALL visitors must pay the standard adult meal price of $3.50.***
We cannot provide free meals to adults per USDA regulations. For more information about this regulation, click here.
