Children visiting Geiser-Pollman Park this summer will not only get the chance to frolic in the new playground, but they'll also be offered a free lunch.

The park has been added as a third lunch site for the Baker School District's summer program, which is available free to everyone 18 and younger Monday through Friday. The program will run from June 16 through Aug. 22, said Jessica Wickert, the district's Food Services director.

Lunch will not be served at Brooklyn Primary School this summer, but instead will be offered at the North Baker Campus at 2725 Seventh St. Baker City Christian Church will again open its doors at 675 Highway 7 to the summer lunch program.

Lunch at the park will begin at 11:15 a.m., just after the library's summer reading sessions end each day, Wickert said. The Christian Church meals will be served beginning at 11:45 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon daily at the North Baker site.
