The Cobb County Public Library is teaming up with Mableton-based Georgia Educational Resources to host free Summer Food Service Program distribution events in June and July for children ages 18 and younger.

Children will receive seven days of breakfast and lunch emergency meals on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Distribution will take place in library parking lots at six locations across the county. Recipients will remain in their cars.

Cobb Libraries hosting the drive-through food events are:

  • Switzer Library, 266 Roswell Street in Marietta, June 10 to July 29 from 10 a.m. to noon.
  • Stratton Library, 1100 Powder Springs Road in Marietta, June 10 to July 29 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
  • South Cobb Regional Library, 805 Clay Road in Mableton, June 11 to July 30 from 10 a.m. to noon.

  • Gritters Library, 880 Shaw Park Road in Marietta, from noon to 1 p.m.
