Free summer meals at three Cobb libraries 


Happy Helpings, Georgia’s summer food service program is offering free food to children until the end of July at three Cobb County libraries.

Cobb County Public Library (CCPL) is teaming with Georgia Educational Resources (GER) for the third year to provide summer meal service, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

Packages of 14 meals each — one full week of breakfasts and lunches — are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last one day per week at the following locations and dates:

  • Tuesdays to July 26, 10 a.m. to noon: Charles D. Switzer Library, 266 Roswell St., Marietta. 770-528-2320, bit.ly/3xN2uYr
  • Wednesdays to July 27, 10 a.m. to noon: South Cobb Regional Library, 805 Clay Road, Road, Mableton. 678-398-5828, bit. ly/3zXDbWu 
  • Thursdays to July 28, 1:30- 3:30 p.m.: North Cobb Regional Library, 3535 Old 41 Highway, Kennesaw. 770-801-5320, bit. ly/3xObSLj 

The meals are prepared by a local county-inspected commercial kitchen and are free for children ages 18 and younger. Adults 19 years and older, who are enrolled in school programs for persons with disabilities, also can receive meals.
