Lunch at the Library
|Lunch at the Library Sites|
Lunch at the Library is keeping kids healthy and engaged during the summer months to ensure all kids return to school in the fall ready to learn.
For many children and teens, the stability, nutrition, and education provided by the lunches they receive in the school cafeteria, and the learning opportunities they receive in the classroom, ends when school lets out for summer vacation.
Summer meal programs in public libraries help combat childhood hunger, obesity, and learning loss during the summer months by providing youth with:
•regularly-scheduled, free & healthy meals through USDA Summer Food Service Program
•learning and enrichment programs
•introductions to library services and resources
•teen volunteer opportunities
Through the Lunch at the Library program, the California Library Association and California Summer Meal Coalition provide libraries with the resources and support they need to establish themselves as quality summer meal program sites for their communities.
