New York State Summer Food Service Program Status Report

“Statewide efforts have identified under-tapped potential site locations where children gather over the summer. Libraries are one such location. A statewide effort has been connecting libraries with sponsors. This has allowed libraries to expand their service, raising the number of sites from 36 in 2014 to 127 in 2018. Libraries have been excellent partners in feeding children, often seamlessly wrapping meals around their summer reading programming. Doing so can help minimize the stigma associated with summer meals served in isolation and increase participation in both summer meals and library programs.”
