Picnic in the Park


The Foodbank provides free nutritious meals to children in our county during the summer as part of the USDA Summer Food Service Program (USDA is an equal opportunity employer and provider). Healthy summer meals are served at various locations countywide – Monday thru Friday for ten weeks. There are no income requirements, and any child 18 and under is welcome to come and receive a free, delicious lunch every weekday this summer. We also offer activities, games, and enrichment lessons at our sites throughout the summer. There is no sign-up or registration process and meals are served on a first-come, first-served basis. See locations below.
