How do I know if my children qualify as homeless, migrant, or runaway?

  • Do the members of your household lack a permanent address?
  • Are you staying together in a shelter, hotel, or other temporary housing arrangement?
  • Does your family relocate on a seasonal basis?
  • Are any children living with you who have chosen to leave their prior family or household? 
If you believe children in your household meet any of the above descriptions and have not been told that your children will get free meals, please call or e-mail Sarah Rowe, the Homeless Liaison Coordinator, at 918-336-3311 ext. 1061 or e-mail RoweSE@bps-ok.org.

Do I need to fill out an application for each child?

No. The on-line application will let you add all children in your household in one application. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information.

Should I fill out an application if I received a letter this school year saying my children are already approved for free meals?

No, but please read the letter you got carefully and follow the instructions. If any children in your household were missing from your eligibility notification, IMMEDIATELY contact the Child Nutrition Department at 918-333-7966.

See the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS letter if you have additional questions.
