CANCELLED CLA Preconference - Lunch at the Library: How to Establish Your Library as a Successful Summer Meal Site [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Offsite
SFPL Latino/Hispanic Meeting Rms A & B
Description :

Public library summer meal programs keep kids healthy, fed, and engaged while school is out.

Participants at the Lunch at the Library workshop will learn how to establish their libraries as successful summer meal sites and connect families with library programs and services. Presenters include nutrition experts who will discuss the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program and the need for public library summer meal sites, and librarians who are operating successful summer meal sites, to share how they got started, their successes and challenges, and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. Presentations and small group discussions will include such topics as getting started as a summer meal site; working with meal providers; recruiting and working with volunteers; promoting your summer meal site and summer programs; coordinating activities and programs to complement the meal service; developing new community partnerships to support your program; evaluating your meal service; transforming your summer meal site into a meaningful youth development program; and telling your story.At the end of the session, attendees will have the opportunity to observe a summer meal program at the San Francisco Public Library (confirmation pending). In California, Lunch at the Library is an IMLS LSTA-supported statewide summer
program. This workshop is co-sponsored by the California Library Association, California Summer Meal Coalition, and San Francisco Public
Library.
