The City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities is working to ensure no child goes hungry this summer with the Summer Meals for Kids program. The program provides free meals for children throughout the Richmond area every summer. All any child between the ages of one and 18 has to do to eat free is walk into any of the more than 125 sites around the city where the meals are served. No advanced registration or reservations are required. The purpose of the program is to make sure children have access to proper nutrition during the summer months when they are not receiving meals at school. Last summer, the department’s program served approximately 346,000 free meals to kids throughout the city and beyond. This summer the program will continue through Aug. 31. For a list of sites where your kids can eat for free, call 804-646-5752 or visit

 “Civil War Medicine” is an all-day program about the gruesome but interesting world of medicine during the war.  Join us for a family-friendly day of living history, surgical demonstrations and children’s activities on this topic.  The program will take place July 21, 2012 from 10am to 5pm at the Museum of the Confederacy-Richmond.


The program will cover medical topics from field surgery to hospital life in Richmond.  Re-enactor Rex Hovey, Surgeon of the 13th North Carolina Infantry, will perform surgical demonstrations throughout the day and a nurse from a Richmond hospital will discuss her experiences during the war.  Other activities include a medical-themed scavenger hunt and crafts and coloring in our Education Headquarters.  

The Program is free with admission to the Museum and continues throughout the day.  For information contact: Kelly Hancock at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)or (855) 649-861 ext. 121
