There is such a thing as a free lunch for kids and teens this summer

Once again this summer, the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and Their Families is providing free lunches for kids and teens at 85 locations throughout the city.

Every Monday through Friday from June 4 through August 10, 2012, everyone age 18 and younger can enjoy a healthy, delicious lunch for free.

There are two sites offering free lunch here in the Richmond District:

Richmond Village Beacon (George Washington High School) | 600 32nd Avenue
Lunches beginning June 4, served Monday through Friday from 11:30am until 12:30pm.

Agape Community Center
378 18th Avenue

Snacks only beginning June 13. Monday through Friday from 4:30 – 4:50pm

To see the full list of free snack and lunch locations in San Francisco, visit the program website.

  1. Hi-

    The DCYF sponsored summer lunch program takes place at George Washington High School. You have the correct address, but the incorrect name of the location. Thanks!

  2. @Dave A. – Thanks for the info. I think the confusion lies in that the program is at the Richmond Village Beacon which is on the GWHS campus, and the Beacon is a program of the RDNC. On the listing from DCYF, they had “Richmond District Neighborhood Center” listed as the site.

  3. Hi Sarah, Just wanted to clarify that we are NOT a snack site this year. Just lunch. And we are open to the community for lunch from 11:30-12:30! Thanks!
