School is out and summer break is in full swing, and that signals the start of the Idaho Foodbanks’s efforts to fight childhood hunger during summer months through the Picnic in the Park program.
Free breakfast and lunches will be served at dozens of different sites across the Treasure Valley throughout the summer. Click here for a complete list of locations.
This year, the National Hunger Hotline is providing a helpful new service to patrons of Picnic in the Park; you can now text the word FOOD to 877877 to find a meal site closest to you.
Last year the Picnic in the Park program served up over 54,000 meals, and this year that number is expected to reach 62,000 meals served.
