VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) - On Wednesday, kids in Vancouver received free lunches as part of a summer program through the city.

Kids lined up for free pizza and juices at Evergreen Park Wednesday afternoon.

Mayor Anne McEnemy was there to talk with the kids.

The free daily camp runs through the summer. The city said it runs three sites in low-income neighborhoods.

“It means a lot here at the camp you get to hang out with friends,” camper Stephanie Luna Garcia said.

The city said nearly 18 percent of kids in Clark County experience food insecurity.
