Summer Playgrounds + Lunch

Summer Free For All - Summer Playgrounds + Lunch

57% of young Portlanders qualify for free or reduced-price lunch during the school year.

Without school lunches, summer becomes the time when nearly 50,000 Portland children face hunger daily. The Summer Playgrounds and Lunch program supports families by offering nutritious meals and recreational activities during the summer recess.

Working alongside community partners, Portland Public Schools, David Douglas, and Centennial School Districts, PP&R coordinates the Summer Playgrounds and Lunch program to ensure that it meets the changing needs in our community. PP&R and its partners are constantly innovating. Our “mobile playground program” brings recreation to children at apartment complexes in neighborhoods where parks and playgrounds don’t exist.

Producing these special events is possible with the help of lasting partnerships with neighborhood associations and community members like you!
