Richland Library Hosts Three Free Summer Break Cafés

School is out and free summer lunches are available in your community! Richland Library is hosting free summer break cafés at three locations from June 3 to August 2.

Children and teens up to 18 can receive a free meal June 2 to August 2 (excluding July 4) from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at the following library locations:

  • Edgewood | 2101 Oak St., Columbia 29204

Summer Break Café meals are on-site, first come, first served, while supplies last. Our Sponsor is Francis Burns United Methodist Church, and the program is managed in South Carolina by the SC Department of Education (SCDE).

The Summer Break Café program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and provides free meals to children 18 and under from June to August. Summer Break Cafés are held at SCDE-approved sites such as parks, libraries, churches, and schools. 

Children and teens can enjoy post-meal activities by participating in the library’s 2024 Summer Learning Challenge.
