“Let’s Do Lunch!”


The East Providence Recreation Department continues its sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program at designated East Providence playgrounds. We offer free, nutritious meals to all children and teens up to age 18. There’s no ID or paperwork required – just come to any lunch site!

The August menu features a yummy selection of items including chicken tenders, beef tacos and everyone’s favorite “Breakfast Wednesdays”! Meals come with sides of crunchy, fresh fruits and veggies and ice cold chocolate or plain milk!

Operating hours are Monday – Friday, 11am – 1pm through August 25, 2017 at Pierce Field, 201 Mercer St.; Onna Moniz-John Park, 11 McCausland Ave. and Providence Avenue playground, 50 Providence Ave. *Please note, no lunches will be served on Monday, August 14.

Special thanks to our “Healthy Partners”, Trinity Tabernacle Church of East Providence and Navigant Credit Union.

The SFSP is developed by the US Department of Agriculture as an extension of the free and reduced priced meals served to children during the school year with the goal of making healthy meals more accessible during the summer months. The program is administered state wide by the RI Department of Education.
