Starting June 6, all branches of the library will offer free lunches daily to children and teens age 1 to 18 through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. There is no income requirement for daily meals; all children seeking a healthy lunch will be fed.
In addition, children may qualify for a take-home pack of weekend meals, which are sent home on Fridays. Weekend meals include two prepackaged breakfast meals, four prepackaged lunch/dinner meals, and one 32-ounce white milk. Parents/guardians simply need to fill out a one-time form per child to verify income eligibility for the Friday take-home packs.
Lunches will be served Monday through Friday from 12:15 to 1 p.m. at each Pike County library branch. For more information, please call the library at (740) 947-4921 or the Pike County Senior Center at (740) 947-5555.
This program is federally-funded by the US Department of Agriculture, and sponsored by the Community Action Committee of Pike County.
Please share this information so that no Pike County child goes hungry this summer.
