OKLAHOMA CITY (Nov. 25, 2020) – Child and adult care institutions across the state are announcing their participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which provides meals to hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans each year. Click here to see the list of providers.

During the last program year – October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020 – over 910,000 children and adults were served in Oklahoma through CACFP.

During that timeframe, approximately 8.6 million breakfasts, 8.8 million lunches, 10.5 million snacks, and 4.5 million suppers were served through this program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and coordinated in Oklahoma by the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE).
