Free Lunch for all kids!

Joplin Schools and Joplin Public Library want to make sure that NO CHILD experiences food insecurity this Summer.
Every weekday from now until August 13, Joplin Nutritional Services Department will be in the entrance of Joplin Public Library at 1901 E. 20th Street in Joplin to hand out free sack lunches to any child (under the age of 18)!
There is no requirement for the child to attend Joplin Public Schools. Meals will be first come, first served promptly at 11 am (not before). Children must be present to receive this service.
Meals may also be eaten inside the Library or in our lovely outdoor spaces. Come soon and enjoy Library services and the convenience of a free lunch from Joplin Schools!
