Here are some resources that may be useful to libraries that are serving summer meals, interesting in doing so, or those who just want to promote it. The toolkit at this site Lunch at the Library has all the information you need to operate or promote a summer meal site.
1. The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) also developed this one pager: http://frac.org/wp-content/uploads/fracfacts-libraries-summer-afterschool-meals.pdf
2. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has bookmarks promoting summer meals (one side is in English/other side Spanish) that they would love to get out to the community. These are available free of charge to libraries and large quantities are available. A great resource to distribute with your summer reading sign-up info! See the bookmarks at: https://www.fns.usda.gov/sites/default/files/sfsp/bookmark-17.pdf
3. No Kid Hungry has created customizable flyers, postcards, yard signs, and book marks you can use to promote summer meal sites in your community. Available for download from: https://bestpractices.nokidhungry.org/summer-meals/outreach-materials
