The promise of learning more about what types of city services are available through various departments might sound painfully dull, but fortunately someone in city bureaucracy understood that the promise of free food helps add spice to that offer.

The City of Alexandria, along with a handful of partners like Alexandria Redevelopment Housing Authority and the Campagna Center, is hosting a series of cookouts this week and next to provide more information on local youth and family programs, including Safe Space and anti-bullying programs.

Cookouts are scheduled for 6-8 p.m. on the following days:

  • Today, Tuesday: Ruby Tucker, 322 Tancil Court
  • Tomorrow, Wednesday: Southern Towers, 4901 Seminary Road
  • Tuesday, July 13: Brent Place, 375 S Reynolds Street
  • Wednesday, July 14: William Ramsey, 5650 Sanger Avenue
