4 Glendale Libraries to Serve Free Lunches to Children Through Summer

From NBC Los Angeles

” Several Glendale libraries will serve free lunches to children on weekdays, starting Monday through Aug. 4.After testing the program called “Lunch is on Us” at one Glendale library, it is expanding to three other libraries this year as part of a partnership with the Glendale Unified School District. The program was started by the California Library Association. “School’s out. And the kids have lost their access to lunch that they normally got at no charge because their families qualified,” said Theresa Robinett, senior library supervisor. “So what a better to have these programs than at the libraries.”Children, from toddlers to teens, who eat lunch eight times during the program will get to choose and take home a free book.”
