Summer Free for All - Free Lunch + Play

Information
Free Lunch + Play is a critical part of PP&R's Summer Free for All - offering free meals and activities for kids from June 21, through August 20, 2021.
On this page

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

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.

Monday, June 21 - Friday, August 20, 21021
