Charleston County Public Library participating in Charleston County School District’s Seamless Summer Feeding Program

The Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) is serving free breakfast to children in need this summer through its participation in the Seamless Summer Feeding Program run by the Charleston County School District (CCSD).  The Summer Feeding Program allows school districts to provide free summer meals to children and teens in low-income areas during the traditional summer vacation period. The program is an extension of the National School Lunch Program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The food is provided by the School District’s Nutrition Services Department for distribution at CCPL branches, and all meals meet federal meal pattern and nutritional requirements. There is no approval process required for participants to redeem free breakfast.

CCPL will serve breakfast to children and teens age 18 and younger between June 4 and Aug. 3 (dates differ by branch) at nine branch locations on the following dates and times:
