Mountain Home Summer Feeding Program
The 2019 program has concluded! Thank you to everyone who was a part of this years program. See you next year!
The “Picnic in the Park” lunch program operates from noon to 1 PM weekdays at Carl Miller Park and Skyview Terrace Apartments (outside clubhouse). Meals are available free for children ages 1 up to age 18. Adults can receive the same meals for a small fee.
The 2019 Summer Feeding program begins June 3rd and concludes August 2nd.
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. During the month of June 2018, more than 5,300 meals were served in the park!
This amazing program works in partnership with other community groups that provide fun activities for the free lunch recipients:
- Golf Lessons by TJ Gomez from Desert Canyon Golf Course
- Mountain Home Library- Twice weekly Literacy activities
- Fire Department-Explore fire trucks and equipment
- Wagon’s Ho-Explore history of the Old West
- Mountain Home Museum-Explore Gold Mining
- Bounce House-Recreational Fun
