OKLAHOMA CITY – School is almost out for most kids in Oklahoma and that means the start of summer vacation.
But for some, it also means going hungry.
Michael Morris is the executive chef for Putnam City Schools.
“It’s always fun to be in an elementary cafeteria and hear what kids have to say and make their day happy with food,” he said.
A new summer food service at Putnam City schools is fighting childhood hunger.
Starting in June, anyone 18 or younger can eat breakfast and lunch for free during the week.
The program provides healthy meals for kids who might not get them otherwise.
As a former graduate, feeding kids healthy food is important to Morris.
“I’m glad to be back here trying to improve on the nutrition that I had as a Putnam City student,” Morris said.
