BOISE -- The Idaho Foodbank's Picnic in the Park program kicked off Monday and has become a summer staple to make sure kids who receive free or reduced-cost meals at school don't go hungry now that school is out.
For 15 years now, the Idaho Foodbank has teamed up with the Idaho Department of Education, the United States Department of Agriculture, and private donors to keep Idaho's children fed with nutritious lunches.
The foodbank anticipates serving nearly 60,000 meals with its eight routes, seven stationary sites, and 17 mobile sites.
The meals are free and provided to all children ages 1 to 18 with no exceptions, no income verification, and no identification required.
Adults can also purchase lunch for $1 at foodbank sites.
The 2013 program runs Monday through Friday until August 16.
