Summer Food Program

Families with Children Food Program logo

Healthy, kid-friendly foods are distributed to families in the summer months as well as at Spring and Fall breaks when children are out of school.

Over 64 percent of the students in the El Reno School District receive free school lunches and breakfasts. During the summer months, families have two more meals to provide for their children daily, as well as when the students are home during the Christmas, Spring and Fall breaks.

No child in the United States should be hungry. When children get so excited about food, it becomes apparent they have not been receiving good, nourishing food which is something most of us take for granted.

Blessing Baskets partners with the Lord’s Harvest to provide food to those in need within our community.

Families in western Canadian County who desire to participate and receive help from this program should complete an application to be processed through the Canadian County Community Action Agency, 203 N Bickford in El Reno, OK 73036.
