Free Food to be Provided at Summer Reading Program

This year’s summer reading program at the Anderson Public Library will not only be fun for kids but nutritious too.

As part of the summer food program run by the Kentucky Department of Education, Kentucky State University Extension SNAP-Ed Program and the KSU Summer Food Service Program, a mobile food truck will be delivering free meals for all under 18 year old registered attendees of the library’s summer reading program.

Gidgett Taylor Sweazy, who coordinates both KSU programs, explained that the food truck will be delivering free meals for children around the county and will be stopping by the library every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to give away meals for the children attending the programs.

“I’m really excited,” she said, adding that the meals will typically be a sandwich with chips, milk, fruit, yoghurt or juice, and dessert on Fridays.  The meals will be brought inside the library a short time before the end of each morning summer reading program for the children to enjoy.

Summer reading will be kicking off at the library in about six weeks on June 23rd.  You can see the full schedule of events and how to register by clicking here.
