Students are invited to North Cobb Regional Library in June and July  to enjoy a free breakfast and lunch on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting at 10am  and watch a summer movie!

Happy Helpings, Georgia’s Summer Food Service Program, will provide free meals to children free of charge this June and July.

Cobb County Public Library and Georgia Educational Resources Inc. (GER) are teaming up for the fifth year to provide summer meal service. Happy Helpings is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. The program for summer break 2024 will be sit down breakfast and lunch meals on the following dates:

Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays on June 3-July 26th

Breakfast 10:00am-10:30am/ Lunch 11:30am to noon

* No Meals served on June 19th  and July 5th 

Prepared by a local county-inspected commercial kitchen, the meals are free for children ages 18 and younger. Adults 19 years and older who are enrolled in school programs for persons with disabilities will also receive meals. Parents and caregivers must remain with the children during the meals.

Last year, CCPL and GER provided 26,950 meals to 1,925 children through a drive-through service at libraries.

“It is difficult to learn, concentrate, or even have the energy to play when you’re hungry,” said Terri Tresp, Division Director of Branch Services. “The Happy Helpings program provides nutritious meals and snacks to children that can improve their summer experience. The library is very grateful to once again partner with GER to provide this vital community service.”
