McAllen Public Library invites the public to pick up a Grab & Go meal bundle as part of the Summer Feeding Program. The imitative aims to provide meals to those ages 18 and under in the most underserved McAllen communities.
Starting June 15, families can pick up at the entrance of the McAllen Public Library, 4001 N. 23rd Street. The meal bundles include breakfast and lunch as well as a healthy snack. Youth can either enjoy their meals in the library lobby or take the bundles home.
“For many children in our community, summer creates a difficult challenge for families struggling to provide nutritious meals for their children,” said Kate Horan, McAllen Public Library director. “The library is excited to help bridge the food gap and make sure our youth get the nutrition they need.”
The Grab & Go meal program is in partnership with McAllen Independent School District and the Texas Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Program. It will run until July 31.
