Special Events and Programs - Picnic in the Park (formerly Lunch in the Park)

Help serve lunches to area youth this summer!

Lunches are served at Cassia, Ivywild, Sunset, and Winstead Parks from 12:00 - 12:30 p.m., Monday - Friday starting June 5th through August 11th (no service 6/19, 7/3, or 7/4). 

Volunteers should be available from 11:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Lunches and supplies will need to be picked up from a local school at 11:30 and returned by 1:00 pm.

Volunteers will need their own vehicle that can accommodate transporting a folding table (folds into 3 feet) and 2 - 3 coolers of lunches. For safety and support, two volunteers are scheduled per site.

A volunteer orientation is required and will be provided prior to serving lunches. The first training will be online live on May 10th, 2023 at 9:30 am. This will be recorded for those who are not able to attend live.

Volunteers who are willing to work at any park can schedule a shift directly through this site. After signing up, volunteers will receive an email shortly with complete details.

Volunteers who have a preference for the park they are assigned to, and/or if they want to volunteer with a specific person, may complete this form to share their preference/availability: https://forms.office.com/g/eFDYPiL6cT
