PIKnic at the Park - Feeding Food Insecure Kids

PIKnic at the Park - Help us provide a free lunch and a day at the park for FOOD INSECURE CHILDREN!
 
Protect Idaho Kids Foundation (PIK) will be launching “PIKnic at the Park” to feed food insecure children for free each Sunday during the Summer while complying with social distancing and Covid-19 health practices.  Masks will be required for everyone and will be provided as needed.  The city will be asked to provide police supervision to assure that social distancing is observed.
 
The program will run for 10 weeks each Sunday from June 28 to August 30th.  Tickets will be free but required, providing an accurate count for the number of lunches needed.  Tickets will be available by visiting the PIK website or at participating sponsor locations. There will be a ticket cutoff each Thursday at noon to determine the number of lunches needed to be prepared.   Adults who bring kids will also be provided a free lunch, but they must have a ticket for each person.
 
Each person with a ticket will be given a pre-packaged lunch consisting of a sandwich, fruit, chips and a fruit drink.  Lunches can be taken home or eaten at the park as long as local and national social distancing restrictions are observed.
 
Tents will be set up at Ann Morrison near the Fountain to disperse the food.  The food will be prepared and packaged at Life’s Kitchen. 
 
To make this is manageable, we will start with 300 lunches served to those people who have tickets and increase that by 50 lunches each week for the 10-week period.  That comes to a total of 5,250 lunches if all tickets are utilized.

These Kids and Families deserve a break from the Coronavirus.  Please help give them a free meal and a day at the park.
