Packed Promise

The Chickasaw Nation is excited to offer Packed Promise, a food delivery program for children pre-K through 12th grade who qualify for free school meals.

Packed promise is funded by USDA that creates an experience similar to online grocery shopping, where each month, participants select a desired food package and place an order via the Packed Promise website or by calling Packed Promise staff. A food package of shelf stable foods is then delivered directly to the participants’ doorsteps.

The program is free to all approved applicants. For more information, contact Packed Promise at (844) 230-3785 or
