FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) A kick-off for the Fort Wayne Community Schools Free Lunch at the Library program took place Friday morning at the Allen County Public Library Plaza downtown.

The event featured free food, ice cream, giveaways, games and children’s activities.

Library branches serve as distribution locations for the free lunch program made possible by FWCS and the USDA. The program starts Monday, June 5.

Free lunches and snacks are available Monday through Friday, June 5-July 29 at eight library locations as a part of our SPARK Summer Learning Program.

The Summer Food Service Program for Children (SFSPC) provides free meals to all children ages 18 and younger and to adults who are enrolled in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled.  The meal program was created to serve nutritious meals to children when National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program meals are not available.

Meals are served Monday through Friday, except Monday, June 19 and Tuesday, July 4.
