ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — The St. Louis County Library will resume its drive-thru meal service after announcing last month that it would end due to a lack of funding.
The library system began offering drive-thru meals in late March, after the coronavirus pandemic started impacting the local community.
More than 671,000 meals and 290,000 pounds of produce were distributed before the program ended in August, according to a news release.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture extended the school meal program which allowed the library and Operation Food Search to resume meal services through Dec. 31.
Drive-thru meals will be provided for children from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 10 library branches starting Monday, Sept. 14. Branches will provide two shelf-stable breakfasts and two lunches on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Meals will be free of charge for children ages 18 and under.
The following branches will be participating:
- Bridgeton Trails Branch – 3455 McKelvey Rd., Bridgeton
- Cliff Cave Branch – 5430 Telegraph Rd., St. Louis
- Florissant Valley Branch – 195 New Florissant Rd., Florissant
