Martinez Library Serving Lunch

CC County Libraries Combat Hunger and the Summer Nutrition Gap

The Contra Costa County Library is serving lunch this summer at eight locations in the county in an effort to prevent a summer nutrition gap. Many low-income children face nutrient deficiencies when school closes for the summer. The effort is part of a statewide collaboration between the California Library Association (CLA) and the California Summer Meal Coalition to unite libraries and summer meal providers and keep kids healthy and engaged when school is out. 

The Martinez Library will serve lunch on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, 12-1pm, through August 10. In addition to lunch, the libraries will offer a variety of free programs, including board games, arts and crafts, musical performances, Legos, movies, and more. To learn more about the Lunch at the Library program, visit, or call (915) 646-9900.
