If you’ve been to any of the Alameda County Libraries, you’ll know that many of our summer programs have centered on food. Even though we may be winding down our summer healthy eating programs and our “Reading is so Delicious” summer reading games at the libraries, you’ll be able to continue your own healthy eating habits as well as help others who may not have access to healthy foods.
You can continue on your own healthy eating habits by checking out a few of the many cookbooks (either electronic or print) and you can help others by dropping healthy non-perishable food into the Fremont Main Library’s two food barrels located near our check-out and returns desks. The barrels are from the Alameda County Food Bank and they will be there all year round so any time you step into the library you’ll have an opportunity to contribute. For more information go to the Alameda County Food Bank website and see how your donations make a difference. There’s even a link to shop and contribute virtually. I guess giving can also be so delicious!
