You know that old saying that there’s no such thing as a free meal? Well, at Nationals Park, that adage will soon no longer apply.
Beginning with the July 22 home game against the Rockies, the Nationals will debut the “Kids Eat Free” program, where children 12 and under will receive complimentary meals through the Labor Day game against the Mets.
Complimentary meal packs will include a hot dog, a choice of chips or applesauce, and a 12-ounce bottled water or soda. They will be available at dedicated “Kids Eat Free” concession stands, located in Section 143 near the PenFed Kids Fun Zone and Section 304 on the Gallery Level.
“We are thrilled to launch this first-of-its-kind program,” said Jake Burns, the Nationals’ executive vice president for business operations “The Nationals are committed to providing the best gameday experience, and the ‘Kids Eat Free’ program will offer tremendous value for our fans. Attending a baseball game is a quintessential American experience. We hope that this initiative will encourage more families to come to Nationals Park and enjoy the national pastime in the nation’s capital.”
In order to sign up for the “Kids Eat Free” program, children must be registered, free of charge, as a Jr. Nationals Kids Club member. Fans can register for the Jr. Nationals Kids Club and the “Kids Eat Free” program through the MLB Ballpark App or by visiting nationals.com/KidsEatFree. Current Jr. Nationals Kids Club members are not automatically enrolled in Kids Eat Free, and will need to enroll separately for the “Kids Eat Free” program to be eligible for complimentary meals.
Fans are encouraged to sign up online before coming to Nationals Park; however, the “Kids Eat Free” benefit is valid immediately upon completion of registration, which can be done at the ballpark. Any adult may register a child for the “Kids Eat Free” program. After registering, fans must use the MLB Ballpark App to access a voucher code in order to redeem their complimentary meals.
