Oceanside, CA (June 8, 2020)- Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) will continue to offer fresh-made lunches and snacks to youth under the age of 18 throughout the summer months. In addition to providing meals to youth attending summer camp, BGCO will continue with their curbside lunch pick up for all youth under 18.
Meal service will be Monday through Friday, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Meals are prepared by our accomplished Culinary Arts staff and are fresh, nutritious, and most importantly, delicious! Each pickup will include a lunch and snack.
“We are very excited to continue providing our youth with tasty lunches and snacks. Ensuring that Oceanside youth to have the nutrition that they need is a top priority and we want them to eat healthy all summer long. We have had tremendous community support from local restaurants, board members, companies and elected officials, all working with us to make sure no child goes hungry. Last Friday, Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath helped on our lunch production line and passed out lunches as cars drove up. We are truly all in this together!” said Jodi Diamond, CEO.
Parents can come to our Townsite location at 401 Country Club Lane in Oceanside to receive meals for their children. Youth need not be a member of BGCO to receive a meal, but must be under the age of 18. Families do not need to leave the safety of their cars, thanks to our convenient curbside pickup! They will pull their car up to the curb outside the Club, where they will see a food program sign. Club staff will then hand meals through the passenger window. We will also offer curbside pickup for those without cars, while adhering to social distancing protocols, as recommended by the CDC.
