Free Meal Pickup at Dayton Metro Library Locations

The Children’s Hunger Alliance is sponsoring a free meal program with weekly pickup available at 12 different Dayton Metro Library Branches. Starting June 23rd, parents will be able to pick up 10 meals (2 meals per day) per child, at the designated times. No registration is needed.

“Learning is impossible when children are hungry,” said Mandie Burns, Dayton Metro Library's Youth Services Coordinator. “The Library is pleased to assist the Children’s Hunger Alliance with this project, so that our families have one less thing to worry about this summer.”

The Library is seeking volunteers to help pre-pack and serve meals at these Libraries. To volunteer, complete a volunteer application online.
