More Okla. children fed with “Beef for Backpacks”
OKLAHOMA CITY — More food is being provided for hungry children in Oklahoma.
“Beef for Backpacks” was announced Tuesday at the State Capitol.
Oklahoma livestock producers are donating cattle that will be processed locally into beef sticks.
The products will be placed with other non-perishable foods into a backpack that is sent home with needy Oklahoma children.
The “Food for Kids” program began back in 2003 as a way for children to have access to food when they’re not at school.
