OKLAHOMA CITY — Nearly 90 percent of Oklahoma City Public Schools students qualify for free or reduced lunches. That’s 40,102 low-income kids – 4,031 more students than five years ago.

Many of them go hungry when school is out during the summer. Enter local pastor, Chad Clement, with Truth Baptist Church.

Although they only have 50 members, they manage to deliver 500 lunches, four days a week, to needy kids in 11 apartment complexes throughout Oklahoma City. Donations and volunteers make it possible.

Students who don’t have transportation also have the chance to ride Clement’s lunch bus to bible classes and parks. He said he’s not only bringing food to them, he’s delivering church.

“We want to make sure that transportation and where they live is not an obstacle to them getting plugged into a local church,” Clement said.

Truth Baptist also delivers lunches during fall, Christmas and spring breaks.

They’re located at the Artisan Ridge Apartments in Oklahoma City.
