When we kick off our programs in January with the literary group we’re partnering with, we’ll definitely have refreshments. They’re an established group who do their own refreshments normally, so they were happy to hear that the library-through the grant- would take care of it this time. I already do a few artist receptions each year, so this is already something I enjoy about my job. A couple people who show up for programs are somewhat food- and housing-insecure, so I make sure there’s real food in the refreshments- not just chips, soft drinks & cookies- I get fruit, real juices, nuts, cheeses- besides the fun foods.
You never know what will make someone choose to come to a program, but food generally helps! So, I’m grateful to be use some of the funding for food.
