Summer Food Program
Children ages 1-18 eat FREE in June and July at various district schools

The Bartlesville Public Schools Child Nutrition Department will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program for Children again this year. Free meals will be served to children ages 1 to 18 in the cafeterias of four schools within the Bartlesville Public School District – Richard Kane, Ranch Heights, and Woodrow Wilson Elementary Schools and Bartlesville High School. (Central and Madison middle schools will be in service for a few days in late July and/or August.)

There are no qualifications or registration requirements for children to take part in the program, which will be in its 27th year within the BPSD. The Summer Food Service Program for Children is sponsored by the district and funded by the United States Department of Agriculture.

The Summer Food Service Program was initially established to ensure low income children could continue to receive nutritious meals when school was not in session during the summer months. All meals served through the program meet federal nutrition guidelines. Last year, the program served 23,480 meals within the district during the months of June and July. Through the program, $71,968.85 in federal funding was brought into the community.

Last year, the Summer Food Service Program for Children coordinated with various summer programs to provide educational and recreational activities to Bartlesville children with a side benefit of providing part-time work for an estimated 12 to 15 school employees.

The Summer Food Service Program for Children is an equal opportunity program. In accordance with federal law and United States Department of Agriculture policy, it is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
