Summer Meals Program Seeking Volunteers

The St. Cloud Public Library WANTS YOU ... to volunteer with this year's Summer Meals Program!

The library is once again partnering with the Yes Network to be a lunch site for the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program. The skinny: each weekday, children up to 18 years old will be able to receive a free, hot meal over the lunch hour.

The meals program runs concurrently with Great River Regional Library's Summer Reading Program, June 10-Aug. 9.

Lunches will be served Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and help is needed from 11:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help serve the food, monitor the lunch area, and help with cleanup. 

Two to three volunteers are needed each day, and everyone interested must first pass a background check.

If you would like to find out more about this volunteer opportunity, contact Kate Buechler, Patron Services Librarian, at (320) 650-2561 or

You're also invited to attend one of the following informational sessions, all held in the Bremer Room of the library. 

  • Thursday, May 23 at 6:00 pm      
  • Friday, May 24 at 10:30 am     
  • Monday, June 3 at 4:00 pm 

If you're looking for a volunteer opportunity to add to your summer routine, this is a great one!
