Page Public Library received a grant through Catholic Charities to provide free meals through the end of the school year. The din­ners are available to all children 18 and younger Monday through Friday between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. The library gives out weekend meals Fridays.

No registration or library card is required. Any child from any­where qualifies. Children or par­ents may pick up the meals.

Page Library manager Deb­bie Winlock said Catholic Char­ities delivers food supplies once a month. On average, the library staff and volunteers give 75 meals a day.

Winlock said, "On normal days, we were doing anywhere from 75 to 125 meals a day. Since school started, it's kind of slowed down, and we've done maybe 50 a day. We're hoping to pick up. We're prepared to give out 75 meals per day."

Winlock said people could also call the library between 10 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. to request meals at different times of the day.
