Lunch and Snacks

San Mateo County Libraries provides free lunch and snacks to children from the dates of 6/10/24 to 8/9/23. Parents or guardians who wish for their child to participate in the program must register prior to starting the program. Food program lunch will be provided from Mondays-Fridays as well as on local field trip days. Food Program will not be available on Adventure Trip Days. Children are not required to participate in the free lunch program.

Campers who are not enrolled in the food program are required to bring their own lunch daily, including at least one main lunch item (ex. sandwich, burrito, etc.) and any extra snacks. Children enrolled in early morning care are encouraged to eat breakfast before arrival, however they are also welcome to bring a light breakfast to camp each day. Food deliveries from delivery apps will not be allowed during camp hours, however, deliveries from a family member are accepted. We understand that sometimes a lunch may be forgotten, if there is an issue with your children’s lunch and you will be needing an alternative, please let us know asap.

In order to keep Colma sustainable, we encourage campers to pack re-usable containers whenever possible. We will practice compositing and recycling throughout the program.

Creating a safe and respectful environment for all campers and staff is our top priority. For more information, please review our  Camp Rules and Disciplinary Policy.
