Posted: Tuesday, June 21st 2016


Superintendent Cindy Marten and Mayor Kevin Faulconer dishing up food at the Summer Fun Cafe
Mayor Kevin Faulconer and Superintendent Cindy Marten serve lunch at the kickoff barbecue in 2014.

On special dates, there's a free summer barbecue for kids and families in many City of San Diego Recreation Centers this summer, in addition to the Monday-Friday Summer Fun Cafe.

Sponsored by the City and the San Diego Unified School District, the barbecues are free to kids and families. Fun activities, great food and valuable community support resources will be at each barbecue. Each family gets a free bag of fresh fruit and vegetables to take home, courtesy of the San Diego Food Bank and Feeding America San Diego.

Through the generous support of the San Diego County Honda Dealers, General Mills and Mission Federal Credit Union, there's no charge for adults to enjoy lunch when accompanied by their child. Children age 18 and younger get free lunch at all locations, thanks to funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

At the special kickoff lunch on June 29, there will be lots to do, including the Swinging Friar and Pad Squad from the San Diego Padres; drawings for Padres gear, bicycles and more; visit with staff from the San Ysidro Mobile Medical Clinic; and music by Radio Latina.
