Funding from Partners for Health Foundation provided summer library staff to organize and serve the lunches donated by Toni's Kitchen. Over the course of 10 weeks, the Library served 2,383 lunches to children. The partnership with the Montclair Public Library, Toni's Kitchen and the Foundation provides a model for keeping low-income children engaged, healthy and learning throughout the summer months.

"We are grateful to Partners for Health Foundation for their support of the Library and the children of Montclair. We were honored to nominate them and recognize all they do to help promote health and wellness in our community," said Peter Coyl, Director of Montclair Public Library.
