Do we need to fill out paperwork?
Meals are 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 are meals served at the library?
Nearly 90% of kids eligible for free meals during the school year don't have access to healthy, nutritious meals after school or 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 Meals at 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.
