Free Lunch + Play supports families by offering nutritious meals and recreational activities during the summer recess, Monday, June 21 – Friday, August 20, 2021.
Working alongside school districts, community partners, arts organizations, and hunger relief groups, PP&R coordinates Free Lunch + Play to ensure that it meets the needs in our community. During the school year, 57% of young Portlanders qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Without school lunches, summer becomes the time when nearly 50,000 Portland children face hunger daily.
Free Lunch + Play offers accessible meal service and engaging activities at multiple parks throughout the city. In addition, Mobile Lunch + Play allows us to expand our program directly to children and families at apartment complexes and parks in even more neighborhoods.
