Managing Agency Oklahoma

Program Description

The objectives of the National School Lunch Program are to make available to all students enrolled in schools and institutions a nutritionally adequate meal during a period designated as the lunch period. The purposes of the School Breakfast Program are to make breakfast available in schools for students who for various reasons come to school without an adequate breakfast and to increase the number of school breakfast programs by continuing to notify all non-breakfast-program schools of the program. Both programs are administered by the Child Nutrition Office of the Oklahoma Department of Education.
