Baltazar F. Ortiz Community Center Hosts Lunch + Play Program
June 20, 2017
We’re happy to be hosting Portland Parks and Recreation again this year with their summer Lunch + Play Program. Parks staff will be at Villa de Suenos behind the Ortiz Center each weekday from 10:30am-2:30pm. Lunch is served at noon and is free to all youth.
57% of young Portlanders qualify for free or reduced-price lunch during the school year. Without school lunches, summer becomes the time when nearly 50,000 Portland children face hunger daily. The Free Lunch + Play program supports families by offering nutritious meals and recreational activities during the summer recess.
