Since 1997, we have hosted Free Summer Lunch in the Park each summer in various parks and locations throughout Fall River. This year marks our 21st summer hosting the program and we have expanded each summer to ensure that all of the city’s youth have access to free, nutritious lunch and activities during the summer months.
This is a FREE drop-in program for kids under 18 years of age who are eligible for free or reduced lunch during the school year. Currently, 94% of Fall River’s 10,250 public school students are eligible for free and reduced lunch but when school is not in session, most of these children are not getting the healthy lunch they need.
Sail Rec! is a non-profit sailing school operated by Greater Fall River RE-CREATION in a permit arrangement with the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). Our learn-to-sail programs are not only affordable, but accessible, customizable, educational, and most of all, FUN!
Be a part of this amazing opportunity to learn how to sail! New sailors gain confidence by learning to captain their own vessel on the river, in a safe and nurturing environment!
Throughout each sailor’s experience, they will cultivate social skills involving leadership and camaraderie.
