Food for thought -- and more

Every summer since the mid-70s, the DOE's Summer Meals program has provided free breakfast and lunch for city youth at neighborhood schools and youth centers. This year, in light of rising food prices and ever-increasing economic pressures on New York City families, the free meals will be on offer at a range of cultural sites, too, like parks, libraries, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Floating Lady pool in the Bronx.

Starting Friday June 27th and through August 29th, anyone younger than 18 can eat for free; no application or school registration is required. Call 311 to find out the location nearest you.
