Libraries and Summer Meals: Food, Fun, and Friends – 1 LEU

a small shopping cart full of delicious fruits and vegetablesThis webinar will introduce you to the many ways that the USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), administered by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) and sponsored by local community agencies, makes a difference in the lives of Hoosier children. Participants will discover the important role that local libraries can play during the summer by helping all children and youth, ages 18 and younger, have access to free nutritious meals when many are facing a daily battle with hunger because they are no longer receiving meals in schools. Becoming a program partner can provide a great opportunity to increase the participation in your library’s summer programming. Join Tina Skinner from the Indiana Department of Education and Marra Honeywell from the Allen County Public Library as they explain the program in detail and how it worked in the past at the Allen County Public Library.
