Portland Parks & Recreation will provide Free Lunch + Play programs in Summer 2020
Concerts in the Park, Movies in the Park, Washington Park Summer Festival, and Portland World Soccer Tournament are canceled this summer.
Portland Parks & Recreation’s (PP&R) is planning to operate the Free Lunch + Play program this summer. Access to nutritious food has proven to be one of the highest needs in our community during this public health crisis. PP&R and our partners will play an important role in keeping kids healthy this summer. Read more.
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, Meals on Wheels People, 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 Lunch + 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!
