Spread the word! The Free Summer Lunch Program has officially kicked off in Duval County at the Jacksonville Public Library! To help ensure that kids don't go hungry while school is out of session, free and nutritious meals are available for children and teens 18 and younger at many library locations.
From now through August 2nd, all kids up to 18-years-old can get a free meal at 12 participating library branches. At these library locations, no signup or application is necessary and any child 18 or younger can simply come during meal times to receive a free and healthy meal. Bring the crew for Summer Reading and fun, and they can receive a meal that includes protein, fruit or veggie and a drink.
Below is a list of the participating library branches and start times. You can also download the list here or find the location closest to you (there are more than 200 summer lunch locations around the city) by visiting www.summerbreakspot.org.
