Summer Food Service Program

In the state of Oklahoma, one out of every four children will face hunger challenges when school closes for the summer. The summer food service program works diligently to provide nutritious, delicious meals to children age one through 18, during the summer months when the National School Lunch Program is not available.

Each summer, the Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services team provides meals at various locations throughout the Chickasaw Nation. Sites include Chickasaw Nation Health Clinics, local public libraries and community centers and at Pennington Park in Tishomingo, Glenwood Park in Ada and Broadlawn Park and Douglass Park in Ardmore.
