Policy and Advocacy

Oklahoma is hungry.

Hunger is solvable through a unified, statewide voice at the Capitol and within our communities.

Federal nutrition programs are critical for food security in Oklahoma.

A child who cannot rely on a nutritious meal at home can be ready and able to learn at school because of the School Breakfast Program.

A working mother who is struggling to make ends meet knows she can get help to get food on the table through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

But these programs are only as strong as the support they receive in the halls of the state legislature and Congress. Hunger Free Oklahoma works daily to remove barriers, protect, and expand these vital programs to work toward a future in which no one in Oklahoma goes hungry.
