Washoe County Library System is proud to partner with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada this summer to provide meals to all children ages 1-18. Beginning June 12, 2018, several library locations will host the Kids Cafe Summer Meals Program. The program delivers a FREE lunch to children right in the neighborhoods where they live, including at library locations where kids and teens are encouraged to spend some time reading while joining library staff for lunch.
Washoe County Library System understands and recognizes the vital service that the Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides in closing the outside-of-school nutrition gap for children who rely on free meals at school. As a partnering organization, the Washoe County Library System is able to help our community and distribute food directly to children and teens in needs as a vital part of the emergency food chain. The library locations that will be participating in Kids Cafe include the Downtown Reno, Duncan/Traner, North Valleys, Sierra View, and Sparks Libraries.
For complete information on the Kids Cafe Summer Meals Program, including information on meal sites and hours, please visit www.fbnn.org. The Sierra View Library location will be serving meals from 1 - 1:30 pm daily.
The Kids Cafe Meal Program meets local health department approval. Kids Cafe summer meals must be eaten on site. Kids Cafe meals are supported in part by the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and are available to all children without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
