Idaho Foodbank kicks off 15th annual Picnic in the Park program June 3

The Idaho Foodbank will kick off Picnic in the Park, a free summer lunch program for children, at 11 a.m. Monday, June 3, at Cassia Park, 4600 W. Camas St.

The program is designed to pick up where public school meal programs leave off when school breaks for the summer. Children who qualify for free or reduced-cost breakfasts or lunches at school will have a place to get a free lunch over the summer in the Boise area.

With support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Idaho State Department of Education and some private donations, the Idaho Foodbank anticipates serving more than 60,000 lunches to children this summer.
