Free Summer Meals... and Books!... for Kids
Every summer, kids and teens ages 1-18 eat for free at sites throughout Jackson County. The Library will visit select summer lunch sites and bring free books, prizes, and information on library resources. Our book giveaways are sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Library, and their generous support was doubled through our partnership with free lunch sites.
Community summer meal programs are open to all families and don’t ask for any paperwork - kids can just drop in. Kids and families can find local summer meal programs by visiting SummerFoodOregon.org or calling or texting 2-1-1 and mentioning “summer meals.” They can also text the word “food” to 877-877.
