SUMMER MEAL PROGRAMS
The City of Temecula next week will launch its Summer Food Service Program, providing free, to-go lunches three days a week for youth, with no requirements for income verification or advance registration. Curbside pick-up of the meals will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from June 9 through Aug. 6, beginning at 11 a.m., at Margarita Community Park, 29119 Margarita Road. Any child, 18 and younger, qualifies when accompanied by a parent or caregiver, and the lunches are first-come, first-served, as the number of meals are limited.
