kids lunch club

The Westerville Area Kids Lunch Clubs is a FREE program that provides children 1-18 with nutritious meals and coordinated enrichment activities throughout the summer when school is not in session. The Kids Lunch Club began in the summer of 2011 at Ridgewood Park, and has successfully expanded each year since. In 2018, 16,902 lunch meals and 17,172 weekend meals were supplied to children in need, totaling 34,074 meals. Additionally, KLC distributed 63,757 pounds of fresh produce at the sites.

Do you enjoy the great outdoors, face painting, crafts, exercise fitness, gardening, nutrition and other extra curricular activities?
We invite you to become a mentor and share your passion with children in our local community!
