Special Events and Programs - Picnic in the Park

Help serve lunches to youth this summer!

Lunches are served at Cassia, Ivywild, Sunset, and Winstead Parks from 12:00 - 12:30 p.m., Monday - Friday starting June 3rd  through August 9th (no service 6/19, 7/4, 7/5). 

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

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. 

Picnic in the Park is partnership with Boise School District Food & Nutrition services, and the food is funded through a USDA food program. A mandated training is required BEFORE you may serve. This training will be offered online live May 8, 2024 from 9:00-10:00am; a recording will be available for those unable to make it.
