Library to offer students free summer meals

Partnership program offered at 17 library locations this summer

COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has partnered with Children’s Hunger Alliance to provide students 18 and younger with free meals this summer at 17 CML locations.

“So many children in our community rely on free or discounted school lunches,” says CML Public Services Director Miya Reyes. “It is absolutely critical that students have access to healthy, nourishing meals over the summer. It not only benefits the body, but the mind.”
