Food for Kids at the Provincetown Public Library Begins Monday, June 27

For the second consecutive summer, the Provincetown Public Library will proudly partner with Project Bread’s Food for Kids to serve as a host site for the Summer Food Service Program for Lower/Outer Cape Cod. The Library will host the program five days per week (Monday-Friday) from June 27 to August 26. Any child in town, local or visiting, can visit the Library lawn anytime from 12 – 1 p.m. for a free, healthy bag lunch. The Library will surround the lunch hour with free, enriching children’s programs in order to maximize the impact of this excellent initiative.

“Year one of the Food for Kids initiative in Provincetown was an overwhelming success for the Library with a total of over 300 lunches distributed,” says Library Director Matt Clark. “The program also enhanced the Library’s ability to foster good will within the community as many days we were able to pair the lunches with free books, prizes, or family-oriented programming.”

Project Bread is committed to providing people of all ages, cultures, and walks of life with sustainable, reliable access to nutritious food in the belief the opposite of hungry is not simply full, but healthy. The purpose of Project Bread’s Food for Kids Program is to ensure children in Massachusetts have access to nutritious, healthy food during the summertime.
