Free Summer Lunch Program, Playground Activities in Green Bay

Local News

With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer, there is no reason not to corral the gang and hop outside.
More than 30 playgrounds in Green Bay are staffed for a months-long string of events starting with the school district’s summer food program, where anyone under 18 years old can eat for free.

“I appreciate that the school’s do this,” said Angela Weber, in the company of nieces. “It’s nice for all the kids to come and play and have a nice, fun summer.”

“It’s really a good chance for families and kids and everyone in the neighborhood to come together and have a free lunch,” said Nathan Prevost, a member of the staff at Wilder Park.

If that was not enticing enough, the city’s parks, recreation, and forestry department has special activities planned–including a city-wide talent show and sports tournament in July.

“We have track-and-field day next week,” he said. “Ten weeks it’s going to be going on for.”

Burning calories and getting some rays is nice, but that pales in comparison to the bonding that the outdoors creates.

“It’s good to see new kids come in here and just really get to know each other and have fun and kind of grow as a community,” said Prevost.

The lunch truck visits the parks Monday-Friday. General playground hours are weekdays 11-5pm.
A city-wide sports tournament will be held July 19, 2018, at Colburn Park, along talent show will be held July 24, 2018, at Bay Beach.
