The Summer Lunch Bunch Program starts Tuesday, May 28 and runs through August 2 (Monday - Friday, except July 4) from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
This is a FREE HOT LUNCH for all children 18 years old and younger at the City Park pavilion. The food will be cooked in the DCHS kitchen and served at the park pavilion.
The Ministerial Alliance and volunteers are scheduling tons of fun activities for children to participate in when they come. Only children up to age 18 are eligible to take advantage of the lunches, but parents are welcome to come sit with their kids as they eat and participate with them in the activities.
Check back for the menus.
The program is sponsored by USD 294.
