Since 2015, LA County Library has been offering free lunch to kids and teens during the summer months while school is not in session, helping to ensure that families have access to wholesome meals.

“This will be the seventh consecutive year we have offered free meals through this program,” said LA County Library Director, Skye Patrick. “We know families depend on lunch and snack programs to provide free, nutritious food for their children when they are away from school. We are excited to partner with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to provide this essential service.”

Lunch at the Library is a partnership between LA County Library and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and is supported by the California Summer Meal Coalition and California Library Association. This program is supported by a grant from the California State Library.
