FRAMINGHAM – Thanks to Project Bread, there will be free lunch for kids under age 18 at the Framingham Public Library this summer, three days a week.
Starting Monday, July 2, lunch will be served for kids from noon to 2 p.m. downstairs in the children’s section at the main Framingham Library only.
This is the second year of free lunches served at the Framingham Library. Last year, about 300 free lunches were served over the summer, said library staff.
Free lunches will be served at the main Framingham Library on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays, said Jennifer Rosenberg, Assistant Supervisor, Youth Services at the Framingham Public Library
The lunch will consist of a sandwich, milk, and a fruit. The menu will be differently daily. Project Bread is conscious of allergies and will have the list of ingredients available each day.
The library will give each child who comes for a free lunch a free book, too, said Rosenberg.
Project Bread is also supplying free lunches to kids at Pelham Apartments, the MetroWest Boys & Girls Clubs and the MetroWest YMCA. These programs are not open to the public.
