Summer Meals Program at Public Libraries -Webinar May 2nd

The USDA Food and Nutrition Program established the Summer Food Service Program to connect children in need to nutritional food resources when school is not in session. This year the USDA hopes to expand the program’s reach by working with public libraries nationwide.

Over the past several years, the New York State Library has worked with “Hunger Solutions New York” to help libraries in low-income areas serve meals to children during the summer months. The USDA Food and Nutrition Program will work to create these same opportunities for public libraries throughout the country.

Summer Feeding Program Webinar: Library Engagement is a national USDA Food and Nutritian Program webinar to help public libraries to add healthy meals to their summer library programming.

Webinar: Friday, May 2nd, 3-4pm EDT
