Summer Food Program to Include Lego Challenge

Children participating in the final two weeks of the Summer Food Service Program at Bennett Martin Library, 136 S. 14th St., will be invited to participate in a LEGO lunchtime challenge. The children will receive a new creative project to build with LEGOs each day of the challenge.

Free lunch is served to children ages one to 18 from noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, through August 7. All children are eligible to participate at no cost. No meals are served to adults. The cold sack lunches are served with milk and juice on a first-come, first-served basis and must be eaten on site. The program was established to ensure that all children ages one to 18 would continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer when school is not in session.

The program is a cooperative effort of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, Lincoln City Libraries, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), as well as many community agencies and organizations.

More information about LCL summer activities is available at lincolnlibraries.org.
