After school meals

According to Feeding America, nearly 40,000 children in Hamilton County live in a food insecure household. That means one in five children are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Children facing hunger are more likely to struggle with school and exhibit behavioral problems.

In an effort to combat childhood hunger, The Library is partnering with UMC Food Ministry to bring after school meals to 19 Library locations.

Meals, which include a protein, whole grains, fruits or vegetables and milk, and are served in the afternoon on school days, to youth 18 years old and under.
