Escambia County Schools 

ECSD Adding Schools to List of Sites Offering School Meals
Starting March 30, 2020, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Beginning Monday, March 30, Escambia County School District’s Food Service Department is planning to add schools to the list of sites where families can pick up breakfast and lunch, for free. All sites will give children or teens a breakfast meal and a lunch meal, during the same visit. The meals are designed to be carried away and consumed off campus (cafeteria/dining rooms will not be open). Meals will be distributed in a curbside pick-up operation. Food items will be in to-go containers and will consist of ready-to-eat food items that should be consumed when received or should be quickly refrigerated for consumption at a later time.
According to the USDA’s policy, the child or children must be present to receive meals. They must be 18 and younger; and children do not have to be a student at that school in order to pick up meals there.
Supplemental school meals will be available at the following sites beginning March 30, Monday through Friday. Because Friday, April 10, is a non-student day, families will need to make other arrangements for that day.

Pensacola with Kids | Blueberry Picking 2017

Those sweet blueberries are ripe and ready for picking in the Pensacola area!  Blueberry picking is such a fun family-friendly activity.  Not only is it a reasonably priced activity, but you also get to take home a product for your money spent!

Most blueberry farms provide gallon buckets to use during blueberry picking but you can also bring your own buckets or baskets to use.

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Bring an empty cooler with you.  If you plan on picking more than a few pounds of blueberries, you will want an empty cooler to put the berries in.  Not only will it keep them cool in the hot sun, but it will also keep the berries off of the ground where ants can find them.   It doubles as a good seat for tired children, too!
  • Bring a small cooler full of ice, water, drinks of your choice and snacks depending on how long you will be out there.
  • Hats and sunscreen will keep you protected out in the hot sun.
  • Bubbles or something just as quiet will keep the kids entertained when they are finished picking blueberries but you are not.
  • We bring plastic bags to pour the blueberries in if we are still picking but our buckets are full!
  • Be sure to bring cash.  Some blueberry farms take checks but most are cash only.

Here are some blueberry farms in the area in alphabetical order.  If you know of one to add to the list, leave us a comment!  I listed the hours and price from their websites/Facebook pages.  Remember these hours and prices are always subject to change.  Call to confirm before you go.

If you know of any other farms near here, please message our Facebook Page.

The 2015 Breeze Cinema Free Summer Movies Series

Free summer movies

Summer vacation starts tomorrow!   I know with 2 little ones, I am always looking for fun things to do with them, and the FREE part makes it even better.  Add to that the lovely AC away from the heat, some delicious popcorn and a great movie and we are all set!

The Breeze Cinema has published their 2015 Free Summer Movie Schedule  to their Facebook Page.

Movies are shown every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am. Doors open 9:30am and movies begin at 10am.

Like I have said before, don’t be late because they lock the doors once the theater is filled.

I will add the other movie theater schedules as we receive them.

Mark your calendars!

6/2 & 6/4  Big Hero 6 & Annie

6/9 & 6/11  Planes: Fire and Rescue & Night at the Museum 3

6/16 & 6/18 Rio 2 & Maleficent

6/23 & 6/25  Boxtrolls & Alexander and the No Good Very Bad Day

6/30 & 7/2  Spngebob 2 & Strange Magic

7/7 & 7/9 Despicable Me 2 & Lego Movie

7/14 & 7/16  Penguins of Madegascar & Earth To Echo

7/21 & 7/23  Mr Peabody and Sherman  & Into the Woods

7/28 & 7/30  Book of Life & Paddington

8/4  & 8/6  How to Train Your Dragon 2 & Muppets Most Wanted

8/11 & 8/13 Frozen & Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)

8/18 & 8/30  Dolphin Tale 2 & Alvin and the Chipmunks  (I am not sure about this one now that SRC has moved the start of the school year to 8/17)

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Head to the free summer movies with patience. These movies fill up quickly with day care field trips and families with kids. This is not a date night movie and there will be constant noise during the movie. It does quiet down to a reasonable level but remember that the movie is free and full of kids!
  • Doors open at 9:30 but a line begins closer to 9am.
  • Concessions will be open and often there is a deal on the Kid’s Pack.
  • You may want to go with a friend who can watch your seat if you have to get up for whatever reason
