Bank of America has awared the Portland Parks Foundation and Portland Parks & Recreation a $200,000 Neighborhood Builders grant from Bank to expand free summertime lunch and recreation activities in East Portland when school is out.

The grant of $100,000 for each of the next two years will boost PP&R's Summer Free For All Mobile Lunch + Play program. In partnership with Meals on Wheels People, the program brings free summertime lunch, sports, arts, crafts, and games to apartment complexes and sites in Portland where parks are currently scarce. Meals on Wheels People was the recipient of the Neighborhood Builders grant last year.
