We are excited to announce that our Picnic and Play service for summer meals will continue in 2022. Free meals will be available Monday-Friday starting Monday, June 6 and running through Friday, August 5.

Due to a discontinuation of COVID-19 waivers, all children must stay onsite to eat their meals in the summer of 2022.  Grab and go meals are no longer allowed.  Children must also be present to pick up meals and additional meals for children not present cannot be requested.

***These links will be updated frequently.


The Picnic and Play program runs June 6-Aug. 5, 2022 (closed Monday, July 4). Sites are open Monday-Friday.
