The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County kicked off one of its nutritional programs Thursday that’s aimed at kids.
It’s called Picnic in the Park.
About 300 kids enjoyed a healthy lunch Thursday at GroganPark in Santa Maria.
The program provides nutritious lunches and physical activities throughout summer when kids are out of school.
“Picnic in the park is one example of how we are working with the community to make sure that children are not hungry and families are being served,” says Bonnie Campbell with the Foodbank.
The Foodbank expects to provide 38,000 meals to 2,000 kids this summer.
