Drive-thru meals resume at St. Louis County Library, including Oakville and Affton branches


Drive-thru meals resume at the St. Louis County Library starting Monday, Sept. 14, as seen at Weber Road Library, above.

St. Louis County Library and Operation Food Search will once again provide drive-thru meals for children, starting Monday. And for the first time, the meals will be offered at Cliff Cave Library in Oakville. Up to now, the Weber Road Library was the only library in South County to offer the drive-thru meals.

Free meals will be handed out from 10 a.m. to noon at 10 SLCL branches starting Monday, Sept. 14. Participating branches will provide two shelf-stable breakfasts and two lunches Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Meals will be available free of charge for children ages 18 and under. Meals will be distributed in the branch parking lots. More information is available at

SLCL began offering drive-thru meals in late March. Over 671,000 meals and 290,000 pounds of produce were distributed before the program ended in August due to federal funding restrictions. Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture extended the school meal program, allowing the Library and Operation Food Search to resume meal services through Dec. 31.
