CCPL, Lowcountry Food Bank bring back afterschool snacks to the library
CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) and the Lowcountry Food Bank (LFB) are working together to alleviate child hunger in Charleston by providing afterschool snacks at four library branches. The free, nutritious snacks are available to kids and teens from 3-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This program was originally piloted at three branches in early 2020, and expanded earlier this year. The program allows CCPL and LFB to serve a wider range of areas in need throughout the County.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 13, the program will be offered at four branches:
Cooper River Memorial Library (temporarily located at 2036 Cherokee Street)
John L. Dart Library (1067 King St)
Main Library (68 Calhoun St.)
St. Paul’s Hollywood Library (5130 Hwy 165, Hollywood)
Snacks are being provided through the LFB’s Kids Café program, and feature nutritious options such as fruit, cheese, yogurt and muffins.
