FESTA Summer Lunch Camp Program: Implementing it in your district
Now in its 17th year, the Festa Free Summer Lunch Camp welcomes children facing poverty from culturally diverse backgrounds to join us daily for friendship, recreation, reading support, special activities and a nutritious, free lunch. Children who attend will participate in age-appropriate programming and eat a nutritious meal daily!
The Summer Lunch Camp helps children who receive free or reduced lunch at school while school is not in session by serving free breakfast and lunch while facilitating camp activities including entrepreneurial learning.  This program combats suburban poverty by providing children with a safe space to grow, learn, and be part of a supportive and positive community.
FESTA 3-Generation Family ESL program serves entire 
The Festa 3-Generation Family ESL program serves entire families – 3 months to grandparent age – with the education each person needs to take steps out of poverty.  From October-April,  two evenings per week, we welcome New American families seeking to learn English and move from surviving to thriving. While adults are learning English, their children are fed dinner and attend Festa Friends Club, which provides programming and academic support for children in grades K-8, and to our Early Childhood classrooms which provide infant care and preschool programming for toddlers. High school students are welcome to join our Teen Internship program where they learn to volunteer with the younger children and serve our neighbors.
Our 3-Generation Family ESL Program serves entire families who originate from 47 countries.  This one-of-a-kind program welcomes families from 44 Ohio zip codes.  We also offer virtual afternoon English classes for adult students who struggle with transportation or live in other states or countries, allowing them to join the welcoming community our program creates.
In addition to the English classes and children’s programming, participants in our 3-Generation Family ESL Program have the opportunity to attend three annual Potluck Events, as well as the children-run entrepreneurial restaurant, Sweet Treats!
