LUNCHAPALOOZA CARNIVALE THURSDAY JULY 14
Hospitality House of Northwest North Carolina is hosting a free summer lunch program for children and families each weekday throughout the summer.
Launched in mid-June, Lunchapalooza aims to fill in the gap for local families who could use some help feeding their children during the summer months.
The program is one-hundred percent free and has no eligibility or identification requirements. Families with children from ages one to eighteen can receive the pre-made lunches, which are provided to Hospitality House by Second Harvest Food Bank through a USDA program.
On Thursday July 14, the Lunchapalooza Carnivale will feature hand-scooped ice cream from Kilwin’s in Blowing Rock, garden activities, and multiple yard games and soccer contests for kids who come out to participate.
Lunchapalooza is held outside at 338 Brook Hollow Road in Boone.
The Lunchapalooza program is available Monday through Friday between 12 noon and 1:30 pm and runs until August 19.
