We will attempt to accommodate transportation needs to the best of our ability.
The Free Lunch program will be available to all our club members through the New Bedford Recreation Department.   There will be no free lunch the first week!  We also have a concession stand where your child will be able to purchase food at an affordable price.  Menus of what will be available will be at the front desk and also sent home with your child.
