Lunch @ the Library

Fuel your summer.

Lunch @ the Library provides healthy, free meals to kids when school is out. By satisfying hunger we put the focus back on reading and learning. Bring the kids for lunch and spend the afternoon at the library.

  • Provided for free to all children 18 years and younger.
  • Available at 13 library locations from June 10 to August 3.
  • Eligibility documentation is not required.

Have Questions?
Do we need to fill out paperwork?

Lunch is provided without question for free to kids from 0-18 years of age. You don't have to show ID, nor fill out any paperwork.

Why is lunch served at the library?

Nearly 90% of kids eligible for free meals during the school year don't have access to healthy, nutritious meals during the summer. We can't ignore that if they're hungry, they can't focus on learning and just being a kid. Learn more about why we offer free summer lunch by watching a recent feature story by KVIE.

Who pays for Lunch @ the Library?

Our program is part of a greater coalition of agencies and nonprofits providing lunch to meet a need for kids who receive free meals during the school year. Funding for summer meals is provided by the United States Department of Agriculture.
