Children and teens ages 1-18 can enjoy a free lunch this summer through the Simplified Summer Food Program for children.

The program is funded through a grant from the Department of Agriculture and provides lunches Monday through Friday at two Battle Ground locations.

• Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from June 20 through Aug. 19 at Kiwanis Park, 422 S.W. Second Ave., Battle Ground.

• Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from July 11 through Aug. 5 at River HomeLink School, 610A S.W. Eaton Blvd., Battle Ground.

Sponsored by Battle Ground Public Schools, the program addresses the need for nutritious meals during the summer months when school is not in session. Children do not need to attend a Battle Ground school to participate.

All children and teens are welcome.
