Our partnership with Operation Food Search allows us to provide free lunch (Monday-Friday) to school aged children. This is FREE but we ask that you sign up in advance to help us plan accordingly.  


1. What are the hours of the Chill Zone? 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday-Friday

2. Is there really a free lunch provided? Yes! Thanks to our partnership with Operation Food Search we are excited to be able to provide lunch daily.  

3. Will there be activities during this time? Yes, we will have different activities set up. Kids can play games, do art projects, draw, or just chill.  

4. Will there be structured activities? There will be days when kids can participate in structured activities led by adults or can do activities independently. All children will be supervised in the same large area where lunch will be served. 

5. Do we need to stay with the kids during this time or can we drop them off? We ask that you do not stay with your child during this time. It's important that they are not dropped off before 11:00 a.m. and are picked up no later than 1:00 p.m.  

6. What time is lunch served? Lunch will be served between 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m.  

7. Can we just pick up the lunch and leave? Operation Food Search requires children to eat lunch at the serving location.  

8. Can we get lunches for family members at home and/or adults? No, lunches are only for school aged children and as previously mentioned to be eaten on site.  

9. Do we have to sign up for the entire summer/every day? This is a flexible program. Your child can come daily, every now and then, what ever works in your schedule. We just ask you give us an idea of how often your child will be joining us so we can have enough meals for all participants. 

10. What can my child expect each day? Your child can expect a pleasant atmosphere with daily games, activities, and a nutritious lunch served between 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m. daily.
