Free Lunch at the Library

Free Lunch at the Library

This summer, kids and teens 18 and under, can pick up not one but 2 free nutritious meals—starting this year, we’re offering reheatable lunch and breakfast.

Meals are available for no-contact pickup on a first come, first served basis at select libraries from 12 – 1 pm, June 14 – August 6, either Mon – Fri or Tue – Fri, depending on the location (see schedule). There are no restrictions on family income. Parents & caregivers can pick up on behalf of children – kids and teens don’t need to be present, but are welcome!

Since 2015, LA County Library has been offering free, nutritious lunches. Lunch at the Library keeps children and teens nourished during the summer months, helping to ensure that kids return to school in the fall ready to learn.

Lunch at the Library is a partnership with 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.
