Roanoke Parks and Rec kicks off summer feeding programs


ROANOKE, Va. – Roanoke Parks and Recreation is participating in the USDA summer feeding program this summer to help kids across the Roanoke area stay fed during the summer months.

“We have a small number of people who actually take advantage of the program,” said Sarah Gill, summer food coordinator at Roanoke Parks and Rec.

“I can tell you most of Roanoke City Public Schools are at 100 percent free and reduced so we do know there is a large need.”

Gill says only 15 percent of children take advantage of the program, and the gap is due to parents unaware of the service available.

Meals will be provided Monday-Friday at the following locations:
