Free Lunch + Play

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 Free Lunch + Play program supports families by offering nutritious meals and recreational activities during the summer recess.

Working alongside community partners, Portland Public Schools, David Douglas, Reynolds, Parkrose, and Centennial School Districts, PP&R coordinates the Free Lunch + Play program to ensure that it meets the changing needs in our community. PP&R and its partners are constantly innovating. Our “mobile play" 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!


FREE lunches, sports and games, arts and crafts, plus, special events featuring music groups, sports teams, libraries, and more.

 
FREE LUNCH—Free lunches served at sites and times listed for those age 18 and under, plus free activities.
FREE LUNCH PROVIDED BY SUN SCHOOLS—Free lunches served at these sites. No drop-in activities.
MOBILE PLAY—Vans travel daily from site to site bringing free activities to kids! No lunches served.
ADA ACCESSIBLE—Individuals may enter and exit the site and enjoy events from a paved pathway, unless otherwise noted.
