Lunch on the Lawn

Join us on the Lawn on City Hall Plaza this summer for free lunch for youth 18 or under. The site runs each weekday during the summer, from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 

Youth 18 or under can come by City Hall Plaza from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. every weekday to grab a free lunch. No registration or identification required – just show up! Meals will be served on a first-come, first-served basis each day.  The program starts on Monday, July 9, and ends on Friday, August 24.

About the program

We want to make it easy for youth to access a free, healthy meal right in downtown Boston.

Many young people work in or around City Hall during the summer. Children walk through the Government Center area with their families on their way to Faneuil Hall and other downtown destinations.

Enjoy a healthy meal while:
  • playing a quick game on the Lawn
  • enjoying Tuesday Tunes on the Plaza brought to you by Berkshire Bank, or
  • simply walking through the Lawn on a summer afternoon.
