School’s out for the summer! No more classes, homework, or tests. However, for some students, when school is out, that means no more guaranteed meals. When school is out for summer vacation, many children lose access to free and reduced meals they rely on during the school year. The Idaho Foodbank’s Picnic in the Park Program fills this nutritional gap for the summer.
Come to one of our 25 meal sites locations, every Monday through Friday from June 6th through August 12th, 2016 to enjoy nutritious and delicious lunches for FREE for children ages 1-18. Adults may purchase a lunch for a small charge.
Get directions to our locations here!
The Idaho Foodbank partners with Literacy in the Park, Mobile Rec, and volunteers from the community to engage with the program participants to teach them the importance of a healthy meal, physical activity, and education.
If you would like to volunteer for Picnic in the Park and make an impact in your community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers range from single individuals to groups from various organizations and must complete a background check.
**All sites will be closed July 4, 2016 in observance of the holiday.
**The Idaho Foodbank will also be providing lunch service at Ann Morrison Park for the Idaho Rush Soccer Camp, July 26-29, 2016.
