To connect with library staff who are operating successful meal programs, please join our Mentorship Program.

If you’re starting a new summer meal program in your library and would like to talk to someone who’s been there before and can give you tips and advice, please contact us to be connected with one of our Lunch at the Library mentors.

Please also contact us if you host a successful summer meal program at your library and would like to become a mentor. Thank you!
