Thanks to a partnership with the School District of Palm Beach County, seven branches of the Palm Beach County Library System served free nutritious lunches and snacks to children during the summer at the following locations:

Each location was buzzing with energy as children ate and worked on independent activities, like coloring, and the adults socialized. The impact on the community was immediately realized as parents and grandparents shared with staff how wonderful it was that libraries were taking on this new role. A total of 10,237 lunches were served at the seven Palm Beach County libraries and 10,675 afternoon snacks were served to the community, as well.

Palm Beach County Library System is dedicated to connecting communities and is honored to serve our community in ensuring that the county’s children are well-fed and well-read throughout the summer.
