The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is distributing free groceries and kids' summer lunches across the county.

Community members can visit any one of 46 locations to pick up fresh produce. No documentation or registration is required.

The Foodbank is also offering Picnic in the Park Monday through Friday until August 7 at seven locations.

Two locations in Carpenteria will run the program from June 16 to August 14.

Free take-out meals will be offered to children 18 or younger.

All of the pick-up lunch sites are drive-thru except the Santa Barbara Public Library.

All pick-up sites have safety measures in place to ensure cleanliness.

The Foodbank is not providing Picnic in the Park summer lunches in Lompoc, Goleta or Orcutt. Lompoc and Goleta school districts are continuing their meal programs launched in response to school closures. Orcutt does not qualify for the program.
