Approximately 100 recreation centers throughout the City of Los Angeles participate in the Summer Food Services Program for Children. Providing free, nutritionally-balanced lunches for our young people, ages 1-18, is the goal of this program. This popular program gets its funding from the United States Department of Agriculture. Each meal features nutritious components from the five basic food groups. Meals are available per age qualification, without regard to race, color, national origin, age, or disability.

In the summer of 1999, Mayor Riordan introduced a free swim program. Children 17 and under, seniors 65 and older, and the disabled of all ages were invited to swim for free at all 58 city pools. As a direct result of this program, attendance at the pools increased over 60%. This program is ongoing check with your local recreation center/aquatic center for more information.
UPDATE: If an adult has a City of Los Angeles library card the cost for swimming is $2.00 and $2.50 without.
