Free lunch and a day at Ann Morrison Park
Protect Idaho Kids Foundation (PIK) and our sponsors are providing FREE lunches and a day at Ann Morrison Park during the summer months to offer food-insecure children and their families an escape from the Covid-19 pandemic. Adults accompanying children will be served as well. The program will run for 7 weeks each Sunday 12noon – 1:30pm from June 19 to July 31, 2022. NOTE: the PIKnik scheduled for June 12 is cancelled due to weather.
- LUNCHES ARE FREE – All guests, attending the PIKniks will be given a pre-packaged lunch consisting of a sandwich, fruit, chips, cookie, and milk or soft drink. Lunches can be taken home or eaten at the park.
- Prize Drawing – Besides a free lunch for the whole family and a day at the park, we will hold a drawing each week for prizes and the grand prize will be a boy’s and girl’s bicycle. Everyone attending the PIKnik(s) will get a ticket for the drawing. You must be present for the drawing to win prizes and the drawings will take place at 1:30 pm each week.
- Provide Income – We will hire current and alumni staff form Life’s Kitchen to help prepare the food for the lunches, thereby providing these young adults some income as they struggle to become self-sufficient. The PIKniks do double duty: feed children and provide income to young adults.
- Food Pantry. In addition to the lunches and drawings, there will be a food pantry for guests to take food home for later in the week. Food provided by our sponsors, and by donors to the PBJ Food Drive.
Directions: Enter on the West side of Ann Morrison Park off Americana Blvd. Head east towards the fountain. Our tables will be set up just off the roadway on the south side of Ann Morrison Fountain. See you there. NOTE: The old fountain has been torn down and the new fountain is under construction but not complete. The PIKniks will be in the same location as they have been the last two years, on the east side of the fountain area.
Thanks to our 2022 sponsors
