We invited Ashley Roudebush from Children's Hunger Alliance back to talk with us about options for libraries and other non-profits to fight hunger during the school year.  Covid is wreaking havoc on jobs and people's ability to put food on the table.  Children's Hunger Alliance can be a great partner for providing no-touch, grab & go meals for your community at this time.  Find out more about the program and how you can get involved!
