Feeding the kids

In hundreds of libraries across the country, librarians are taking on the additional role as cafeteria ladies (or lads).
The New York Times has a story this morning about how libraries are teaming up with other public agencies to provide lunches for kids over the summer months. The money comes from the federal government.
The problem being addressed is the growing number of kids who are hungry because school, the regular place they get meals nine months out of the year, is out in the summer months for so many of them.
The Times article didn't list any programs like this in Texas. I'm not sure Wimberley has a large number of children who need this kind of thing.
If they do, though, I'd sure like to know about it.
