School’s out! Who’s eating? LA County Parks provides over 220,000 lunches each summer to children in low-income communities. But when school's out and the summer begins, close to 400,000 eligible LA County children miss out on free and nutritious lunches each year. Summer meals don’t just fight hunger: they keep kids fueled, active and ready to learn. .
We can fight summer hunger and ensure food is nutritious, local, sustainable and fair through the Good Food Purchasing Policy.
On August 3rd, join us for a celebration of the Summer Lunch Program at LA County Parks and help kick off the Good Food Purchasing Policy campaign at LA County. We can bring Good Food to more kids throughout the region whose health and wellness benefit from school food and summer meal programs. The event will feature family-friendly fun including a garden planting, a pop-up farmers market, healthy food demonstrations, a social media action photo booth, and more! .
