Summer Feeding Program
One True Light Summer Feeding program began in 2012 and offers free lunch for Duncan children ages 0 to 18 during the summer school vacation. Many children rely on free or reduced meals during the school year and our meal program aims to help alleviate food insecurity during the summer months.
Distribution sites across Duncan take many forms. We partner with churches, the City of Duncan for use of park facilities, and have also used outdoor school facilities. We are always looking for sites which will allow us to feed as many children as possible.
SUMMER 2021 will be grab-and-go meals at four different locations.
One True Light Mentoring Initiative is a school based mentoring program placing volunteers in Duncan Public Schools for the purpose of building one-on-one relationships with students. We now have mentors placed in ALL Duncan Public School facilities (With the exception of pre-school programs.)
Currently, just over 80 local volunteers are trained to act as mentors. Mentors receive quality training and ongoing support from our staff to assist them in helping students claim education and personal success as a goal.
Mentor volunteers are in GREAT DEMAND! For more details on requirements, see get involved.
