Douglas County Healthy Summer Kickoff

Friday, June 12th, 11am-5pm

400 West Harvard Avenue

Roseburg, OR

Roseburg Public Schools’ nutrition vendor, Sodexo, has converted an old minibus into a mobile lunch bus, which will bring free summer lunches to children around Douglas County. Come celebrate this new complement to our summer lunch program this Friday.


Kids eat lunch for free at this event. Vendors will have other food items for sale for parents and the general public.


Retired NFL player and UO alum Anthony Newman will be in attendance, Sodexo Chef Dolores Tesky will be serving up healthy smoothies (from the recipe of Fir Grove Future Chef winner Savaun Deng) and the Douglas County Health Department will be onsite teaching proper hand washing practices. Also expected are the Oregon Dairy Council, representatives from the NFL’s Play60 campaign, the Oregon Department of Education, Hunger Free Oregon and Roseburg High School’s FFA Chapter, as well as local farmers and other vendors.
