Winter Fun Café opens for kids free lunch on January 6

Winter Fun Café opens January 6 at 15 sites throughout the San Diego Unified School District. The nutritious lunches are available free to any child 18 years and younger. There is no paperwork or proof of income required for children to take advantage of this program.

Just come to one of the eight Park and Recreation Centers, one YMCA or four military-related sites hosting the program. San Diego is one of very few districts in the U.S. that offers this program during intersession.
Winter Fun Café helps to bridge the gap during winter intersession when school lunch is not available.

“We feel there is a real need for families, especially during the holidays,because a lot of children and families depend on the food at school during the week,” said Gary Petill, Food Services Director.
