Volunteer to Feed Children in Your Community this Summer – Apply by Jun 5

Posted by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation on May 26, 2020

The Mayor has called on community leaders, faith-based organizations, and nonprofits to help make sure young people have access to safe, nutritious meals close to home this summer by signing up to become a Parks & Recreation Playstreets Supervisor.

Playstreets is a meal distribution program that provides meals to thousands of children each summer.

Residents and organizations interested in applying to be a Parks & Recreation Playstreets Supervisor must live on a small, one-way street. Volunteers must be available to close their street to through traffic each weekday from June 15 through August 25, and distribute grab-and-go meals to local kids at noon and 3 p.m. each afternoon.

This year, the Playstreets application has been modified to ensure residents can fulfill application criteria while practicing safe social distancing. The deadline to apply is Friday, June 5.
