Live Well Geary County will sponsor free meals for children ages 1 through 18 this summer through the Summer Food Service Program – known locally as Summer Picnic Parties.
Summer Picnic Parties will operate every weekday (with the exception of July 4), from Noon to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, from May 30 to July 28 at five locations in Junction City and Grandview Plaza:
- Playground Park, 1001 W 5th Street, Junction City
- First Presbyterian Church, 113 W 5th Street, Junction City
- Dorothy Bramlage Library, 230 W 7th Street, Junction City
- Regency Mobile Home Court, 948 Grant Ave, Junction City
- Grandview Community Center, 402 State Ave, Grandview Plaza
Any child ages 1 through 18 can attend any of the five local Summer Picnic Party locations. No paperwork is required. Summer Picnic Parties are staffed with volunteers who are passionate about feeding kids in our community.
Picnic sites will offer fun activities for kids along with lunch. Each time a child attends a picnic party, they can enter to win a new bicycle and helmet. One lucky winner from each picnic site will be chosen, so the more picnic parties a child attends, the more chances they have to win!
Summer Picnic Parties are brought to the community by Live Well Geary County, a local organization dedicated to improving the health of Geary County residents. Lunches are provided by the Kansas Food Bank through the USDA. Information is available online at www.livewellgearycounty.org/summer-picnic-parties and on the Live Well Geary County Facebook page.
