Free afterschool Kids’ Café meals continuing at High Point, South Park libraries

If you have, or know, kids/youth at risk of hunger, Seattle Public Library wants to remind you about Kids’ Café – free afterschool meals at High Point (3411 SW Raymond) and South Park (8604 8th Ave. S.) branches every weekday during the school year:

The Seattle Public Library has partnered with Food Lifeline, Boeing and the USDA to bring healthy and kid-friendly foods to three Library locations. Free after school meals will be available for all youth ages 18 and under for the remainder of the school year, through June 22, 2018.

All kids are welcome — no proof of income, address or citizenship is ever required. Kids Café meals are specifically selected to appeal to kids’ notoriously picky palates and to meet their special nutritional guidelines.

Library programs are free and everyone is welcome. Free parking is available at all three locations. No meals during the Library’s holiday closures.

Visit the High Point branch 2:45-3:30 pm weekdays, the South Park branch 3:45-4:15 pm weekdays.

    This is the kind of tax money that I don’t mind being spent.  Hungry kids don’t do well in school and if we can keep kids healthy and fed the probably will be productive citizens. All libraries should have free food for kids (there are hungry kids everywhere). Hopefully they can continue on with the free lunch for kids in the parks during summer as well.  There should be no hungry or unsheltered kids in this city. 

    Sometimes living in a liberal city is great.  Other times it leaves you scratching your head why we spend money on some things.

    I went to the library with my daughter to return books after school a few weeks ago. The girl that had the snacks called her in there and showed her the different options. There was no questions asked and it made my daughter so happy getting a fun after school snack!

      It’s good to have kids from all socioeconomic backgrounds stop by. Then there isn’t a stigma that it’s just for “poor kids.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
