The kids work hard all year so they can play hard all summer. Busy parents can take a little break from the homework help and after-school activities. However, being the short order cook to our growing little ones and meeting their nutritional needs, doesn’t end until adulthood, and sometimes not even then! How are you managing? No judgement here – my kid loves fast food too. It's convenient, but so unhealthy and expensive if not done in moderation.
Let's save those fast food trips for another time. This summer, why not visit one of our locations and munch on a nutritious, and free, meal every weekday from partnering organization CitySquare. Don’t think these are bland, boring meals either. The menu for June alone includes chicken sandwiches, Philly cheesesteak, nachos, whole grain chips and dip, carrots, and a variety of fruit juices. Each meal comes with a whole half pint of milk, too! Kids and teens up to age 18 can receive a full meal and also participate in fun activities during their lunch time, courtesy of library and CitySquare staff!
Visit us and let the kids enjoy a yummy meal at the following locations and times through Aug. 9:
Valley Ranch Library, 401 Cimarron Trail11:25 to 11:50 a.m., Monday - Friday
West Irving Library, 4444 W. Rochelle Road11:25 a.m. to noon, Monday - Friday
