The Summer Café is coming to Grand Canyon Village, Tusayan and Valle

All kids 18 and under eat free. The food is provided by St. Mary’s Food Bank through the Arizona Department of Education. The goal of the summer food program is to provide nutritious meals to students who rely on school meals through the summer months. We know that if there are activities provided before, during or after the meal that more kids will show up so programming is vitally important.

The Summer Café will be held at:

  • Noon to 2 p.m. May 28 through Aug. 3 — Grand Canyon Village: Grand Canyon Recreation Center, 2 Mohave St., Grand Canyon Village.
  • 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday, June 4 through July 27 — Tusayan: Grand Canyon School District Sports Complex, 330 Long Jim Loop, Grand Canyon Village.
  • 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday, June 18 through July 27, Valle: Enstrom Baseball Field, 300 Enstrom, Williams (Valle).
