The Summer Food Program reported at a meeting I attended last week that participation in the free summer lunch program is up 10% this year compared to participation last year at this time. This morning on Oregon Public Broadcasting's morning news there was a piece that did a great job describing the problem getting eligible hungry youth to participate in the summer food program. One of the key factors for getting youth to participate in the summer food program is providing activities and programs. Many summer food programs don't have the money or resources to provide activities or program, this is a gap that libraries can and are filling! As you know, youth must eat food to get the energy they need to read and learn. You can read the story<http://www.opb.org/news/series/classof2025/learning-and-lunch-school-programs-fight-the-summer-slide/> or listen to it<http://stream2.opb.org/media/ome/2014/08/0812OPBME.mp3> online.

As of August 8th the Oregon College Savings Plan has received 4,654 Fuzz Boom Save! entries. In an effort to promote summer reading at public libraries and saving for college beyond the 15 sweepstakes winners, the Oregon College Savings Plan also sponsors a KATU media partnership and a summer reading performer at legally established public libraries serving fewer than 10,000. Libraries with winners receive $500 to spend on their next summer reading program.
