Lunch at the Library: Nourishing Bodies and Minds

For too many children and teens, summer is a time of hunger and learning loss. Libraries offer the perfect environment to combat childhood hunger and obesity while preventing summer learning loss by offering free, healthy lunch to kids through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. In California, Lunch at the Librarywas developed to provide tailored support to library staff, offering tools to develop successful public library summer meal programs that draw new families to the library, foster community partnerships, and engage families with learning and enrichment opportunities while school is out. Join us for this webinar to learn about the tools and practical tips for starting or expanding a USDA summer meals site and incorporating lunches into your summer reading program. Even if you’ve been offering summer lunches for years, you’ll come away inspired and ready to plan.

The Summer Food Service Program is a program of the United States Department of Agriculture. Lunch at the Library is a project of the California Library Association and California Summer Meal Coalition and is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.

Presented by: Trish Garone, Programs Manager, California Library Association; Patrice Chamberlain, Executive Director, California Summer Meal Coalition; and Jasmin LoBasso, Marketing & Promotions, Kern County Library (CA)
