Did you know that one out of every four elementary students in Highland Park and Highwood qualify for the federal lunch program?
Unfortunately, during the summer there is no access to school lunches for most of those kids. This year Moraine Township launched a program to provide bags of breakfast and lunch items to qualifying students during the summer. They plan to distribute over 225 bags of of food every two weeks to kids in need for the entire summer vacation. They could use the community's help however in procuring that food. From now until August 15 the Library will be one of the places where you can drop off food donations. How about bringing something by the next time you come in to give a summer reading report?
