Free Meals for Kids

On Nov. 2, 2020, the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library’s Main library location will begin distributing free meal packs to all Richland County children. The Children’s Hunger Alliance will be sponsoring this meal distribution, details below.

Monday - Friday 3:30- 4:30 PM (If the Main Library is closed for any reason, this service will not be available)
Two meals may be picked up on Friday (one for Saturday)
Children’s Department on the 2nd floor of the Main Library will be the pick-up location for these take-home meals

Open to all children under the age of 18 regardless of financial status, and customers need only provide the child’s name to receive a free, healthy, shelf-stable meal. 

The mission of the Children’s Hunger Alliance “is to ensure that children without access receive healthy food, nutrition education, and physical activity.” MRCPL is one of more than 250 programs throughout Ohio partnering with Children’s Hunger Alliance to help provide nutritious meals to children who may not have weekday evening meals available at home.
