Lunch in the Park

Thanks to all our volunteers who helped make Lunch in the Park successful again this year!

Lunch in the Park is a summer program that provides free, healthy lunches and enriching educational programs for children 18 and under. The program is in it’s 19th year. This program is made possible thanks to our partnerships with Columbia Parks and Rec, Columbia Public Schools, and Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services.

This year’s program served 2,209 lunches over the course of 9 weeks. Volunteers donated 634 hours of their time to help pack and serve lunches and provide activities to those who attended. Thanks to everyone who helped!
