Children who depend on school lunches are at a high risk of hunger now that schools are closed due to the COVID19 crisis. Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) and the Be Mighty Campaign is serving grab and go meals for kids and their families during this time.
From March 14 through March 22, CALS served over 3,400 meals at three branch libraries- Williams, Dee Brown, and McMath. The need for meals continues to grow as the reality of the situation sets in and meager resources of families living on the margin begin to dwindle. CALS will continue to raise money and feed kids and families as more people lose their jobs and the need grows. We can’t do it alone. We need your help to make sure children don’t go hungry.
