Daily Bites and Snack Packs fill the school year with good food while the Summer Food Program provides healthy sack lunches and enrichment activities to children throughout the summer. Serving five locations from Carey to Ketchum, the Bloom Truck and Bookmobile in partnership with The Community Library ensures that every child has access to a healthy meal and a safe place to learn and engage with their peers during the summer months.
We’re excited to be back on the road for FREE food, fun, and reading with The Community Library for the 2022 season. Check out the summer schedule below and let us know if you have questions!
The Hunger Coalition and The Community Library collaborate to bring a food truck and bookmobile to isolated neighborhoods throughout Blaine County. In order to prevent the summer slide in nutrition and learning, over 18 partners bring enrichment activities designed to keep bodies and minds healthy and active and prepared to re-enter school in the fall.

We believe it is essential for children of all ages to have easy access to healthy food in order to learn, grow, and participate in their community with confidence. Daily Bites provides healthy kid-friendly snack pantries in easily accessible locations for all children throughout Blaine County.
Snack Packs provide nutritious, kid-friendly, easy-to-make meals and snacks for children to take home over the weekends. Depending on the time of year, between 36%-42% of kids in Blaine County Schools and Syringa Mountain School access the Free and Reduced Lunch Program at school.
