Amarillo Parks and Recreation Offering Free Lunch for Kids

Panhandle children go hungry more often then you think... According to a nationwide hunger survey.

More than 35-percent of the children in the panhandle are hungry every day, and that number rises during the summer months because school lunch rooms are shut down.

That's one reason Amarillo Parks and Recreation is offering free meals to all children no matter what income level.

The children receive a nutritious lunch provided by Amarillo ISD and even get some time to play.

The summer food program has been around for several years and feeds more than 15-hundred children each summer.
