CINCINNATI — Summer vacation can pose a problem for children who rely on school for regular healthy meals.

That's why the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is teaming up with UMC Food Ministry and Mount Healthy City Schools to provide meals and snacks to children this summer.

The Summer Meals program will run on weekdays from June 3 through Aug. 16 (except on July 4).

Children 18 and younger, as well as people ages 19-21 who have been identified as having mental or physical disabilities and are enrolled in Individualized Education Programs, are eligible for the Summer Meals program.
