Library Branches Offering Summer Lunch Program

The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners recently approved a proposal to partner with the School District of Palm Beach County to serve free lunches and snacks to children during the summer at seven Palm Beach County Library System branches.

The service, for all children through age 18, began Tuesday, June 6 and continues through Friday, July 28, excluding holidays and weekends. The library locations include: the Acreage branch, the Belle Glade branch, the Greenacres branch, the Jupiter branch, the Lantana Road branch, the Main Library and the Wellington branch.

The Summer Food Service Program ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. The Palm Beach County Library System is proud to partner with the school district to make sure that all children are well-fed and well-read throughout the summer.
