Idaho Food Bank trucks are once again in Boise parks providing lunches for low-income children. Last summer the food bank says it served nearly 60,000 lunches in its Picnic in the Park program. The lunch trucks will be in 20 locations through mid-August.
The Boise School District begins its summer meals program today. The federally funded program serves low-income children whose access to nutritious meals at home is limited. Seven Boise schools will serve breakfast and lunch weekdays through the end of July. One other will serve lunch only. The Meridian School District begins its program later this week.
