Starting June 1, 2023, the Summer Meals program will return to our neighborhood branches to combat hunger and ensure children have access to food during summer break.

In partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, FREE nutritious meals will be available for children ages 18 and under, Monday – Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Backpack Meals will be available at select branch libraries. Children will receive a two-day supply of meals including two breakfasts, two entrees, and two snacks.
