    Free Summer Food & Fun For Kids

    Post  KatieG on Thu May 21, 2009 12:16 am

    Free bowling every day this summer go to www.bowlholidaylanes.com and click on youth programs to register. It's for kids that will be starting school this fall so I wonder if pre-k programs count

    Free breakfast and lunch for children ages 1 - 18 through school district nutrition program (we used to call it "frunch" growing up because it was free lunch) June 1 - July 17. http://www.caddo.k12.la.us/files/news/Summer%20Flyer%202009.pdf I don't know the exact location because it just says "Broadmoor" for a neighborhood site so I'll try to find out the specifics.

    Thanks for the bowling tip! That sounds like a lot of fun!!

    Explain more about the frunch??? Question

    Why would they be making and then just be giving away a bunch of food? Is it to train new kitchen workers for the coming school year or what??? So confused on this one, but it sounds like something the kids would enjoy!

    During the school year free or reduced lunch is provided for kids that meet certain income requirements (the money comes from state programs) while the rest of students pay full price. During the summer kids still need to eat so those free programs are continued but available to everyone. I'm sure if it gets to the point where they don't have enough food for the crowd that shows up they would have people meet certain income requirements for the summer as well. If you click on the link in the message above it lists the sites and times. They are all at schools so Broadmoor is at Broadmoor Middle school but it's just a neighborhood site so summer school is not happening at that school. The closest one to me is at Youree Dr. Middle School and they will have summer school in session so my kids would be eating with the kids taking summer school courses.

    We just had our first "frunch" of the summer today after swimming lessons and the kids thought it was great. They had a corn dog, tator tots, 1/2 apple, and a salad. I'm going to try out breakfast tomorrow to see how it is. It was my kids, Steph's kids, and HeatherAnn's kids. I'm not sure if others showed up but we were the only ones there at Youree Dr Middle school at 11:15 today. It was so nice not to have to invent another meal and not have to clean up after one either. Smile
