Resources

As a parent or guardian, we encourage you to discover how this is more than just a club, rather, a conscious effort to combat child hunger. When school lets out for the summer, 1 out of every 4 families in Ohio report they experience food hardships during the summer break. Go, Lunch! is one way families who experience these hardships can catch a break. We're here to help ensure your child’s nutritional needs are being met and encourage physical activity. By taking action through learning more and spreading the word, you can help Columbus Recreation and Parks continue to expand programming availability and improve the variety and quality of meals served throughout Franklin County.
