Summer Lunch Program

   The Roanoke Police Department partners with the Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority, as well as the YMCA Roanoke, to hand out free lunches to dozens of kids at several different locations in the city.  During the summer of 2015, officers helped staff at the Gainsboro YMCA distribute lunches at the Washington Park Pool and at the Jackson Library.
   Officers make monthly appearances in June and July at RRHA sites including:  Lansdowne Park, Bluestone, Indian Rock Village, Jamestown Place and the Villages at Lincoln.  Officers also set up a time to play board games with children at each site.
