The annual free summer lunch for kids program for kids is back.

The Summer Fun Café program begins June 21 in parks, schools and other locations (see locations). The program offers free lunches and snacks to children age 18 and under in low-income neighborhoods.

The program kicks off on Wednesday, June 22, a free community barbecue at the Skyline Hills Recreation Center, 8285 Skyline Drive (92114). In addition to great barbecue, it will feature a nutrition decathlon, prizes, food giveaways by local food banks, the San Diego Padres’ Friar and Pad Squad, as well as information from community social service and support programs.

The Summer Fun Café is sponsored by the San Diego Unified School District and the City of San Diego Park and Recreation Department through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer Food Service Program.
