Fifteen LA County Libraries Will Serve Free Lunch
By City News Service
Published June 15, 2017


Los Angeles County Library has expanded its Lunch at the Library program to 15 libraries this summer. Kicking off on June 12, 15 County Libraries will provide a free lunch to youth through 18 years of age from 12noon to 1 pm, with no restrictions on family income, through August 4.


“LA County Library is committed to providing access to everyone and is excited to expand the ‘Lunch at the Library’ program to 15 libraries this year. We welcome all youth to visit our libraries for a free, healthy lunch and to enjoy all of the programs and services that the library offers,” said County Library Director Skye Patrick.

Lunches will include items such as sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, and healthy dairy products. (There will be no lunch served on July 4 as all LA County Libraries will be closed in honor of the July 4 holiday and August 3 for an annual Staff Development Day).

“This will be the third consecutive year that LA County Libraries have provided free lunch. Over the past few years, we have provided over 14,000 lunches at our libraries and are excited to provide this service again this summer,” said Patrick. “We understand that many children receive their lunch while at school and are left without that resource during the summer months when school is out, so we welcome those students to visit our libraries for a nutritious meal. I am confident that new visitors will be delighted to learn about our Summer Reading Program, 24/7 Virtual Library, teen programming, diverse story times and more!”

The 15 County Libraries offering free lunch Monday – Friday, 12noon – 1 pm include:

A C Bilbrew Library

Baldwin Park Library


Carson Library

Clifton M. Brakensiek Library

East Rancho Dominguez Library

Huntington Park Library

La Puente Library

Lake Los Angeles Library

Lancaster Library

Lennox Library

Norwalk Library

San Fernando Library

Lunches are provided by the USDA Summer Food Service Program. The ‘Lunch at the Library’ program is a partnership between the LA County Library and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks & Recreation – with support from the California Summer Meal Coalition and the California Library Association.
