Library feeds more than mind over winter break

Visalia Branch Library will serve free meals over winter break in partnership with Fresno EOC


VISALIA – The Visalia library is looking to feed more than your child’s imagination and quench more than their thirst for knowledge over winter break.

The Tulare County Library will provide free meals to children 18 and under at the Visalia Branch Library thanks to a partnership with Fresno EOC (Economic Opportunities Commission). The Winter Meals Program will provide nutritious lunches including sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, crackers, and milk for every child that comes into the library at lunch time on weekdays beginning today, Dec. 26 through Jan. 11. The library is closed on Mondays and on New Year’s Day. Lunches will be served from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. upstairs in the Blue Room of the library, located at 200 W. Oak Ave. in downtown.

Tulare County Library and Fresno EOC are able to provide this service through federal programs funded by the USDA and administered by the California Department of Education. For more information about this and other Library services, call
