Kids, teens can get free meals at Gwinnett parks this summer

All Gwinnett County residents 18 and younger can get free lunch and snacks at three parks this summer, according to the Gwinnett Parks Foundation.

The meals will be distributed at Best Friend Park in Norcross, Rhodes Jordan Park in Lawrenceville and the Lilburn Activity Building, an indoor recreation center managed by the county parks department. Kids and teens don’t have to qualify for free lunch at school in order to get the summer food; they just need to show up.
