Free Summer Meals at Select Arlington Public Library Locations

The Arlington Public Library joins other Arlington institutions to offer free meals to children this summer. Children ages 1-18 can receive a free lunch at the East Arlington, Southeast, Southwest, and Woodland West Branches every weekday from 12:15-1:15 p.m.

This is the Library’s second summer providing meals in partnership with CitySquare Food on the Move, a federally funded nutrition program that meets the needs of children who might go hungry outside of school.

“Modern libraries are community centers,” said Ivonne Kieffer, Library Administrator for Programming and Community Engagement. “It’s a priority for us to support Arlington’s children and families. Working with CitySquare to provide lunches is a natural extension of our other programs this summer, like Summer Reading Club.”

Free meals are available every Monday through Friday, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., until July 28. Lunches must be eaten at the library, but there are no income requirements to participate. Registration is also not necessary. Simply come to the library and enjoy lunch.
