Mtn. Home Summer Feeding Program

The “Picnic in the Park” lunch program operates from noon to 1 PM weekdays at Carl Miller Park. Meals are available free for children ages 1 up to age 18. Adults can receive the same meals for a small fee.

The 2021 Summer Feeding program begins June 1st and concludes July 30th.

The food served is reviewed for nutritional value by the USDA and Mountain Home qualifies as an approved Summer feeding location. This program is sponsored by St. Vincent de Paul but funded federally through the USDA. 

In 2021 we aim to serve nearly 15,000 meals!
