About this Article

Elgin's free summer lunch program for children younger than 18 includes games and other activities at "drop-in playgrounds" set up at five of the program's nine sites. This is the program's fourth year; last year, 12,901 free lunches were served throughout the summer, Elgin Parks and Recreation Director Randy Reopelle said.
