A free-for-the-whole-family barbecue is being held to kick-off the Summer Cafe Food Program. All kids, as well as their parents/guardians, can receive a free lunch. The WalMart Foundation is funding adult meals at this event, where the San Diego Padres' Friar and Pad Squad are scheduled to perform.
Other activities scheduled for Wednesday include fruit and veggie games, a bike and backpack raffle, the Let’s Move Dance Flash Mob, plus cooking demonstrations by Chef Alex Carballo. Many community organizations will provide information about low cost utility and healthcare programs, health screenings, immunizations, food assistance, housing, counseling and summer activities, as well as distributing free fruit and vegetables. There will also be an inflatable jumper, crafts and music by Radio Latina. Children can participate in all the activities at this and other barbecues throughout the summer, earning points toward a super cool Power Up Your Summer patch.
