Grand County Library staffers Adrea Lund, Mary Adaire and Shaycee Renn handed out free meals to families in need Thursday, March 19. The Grand County School District donated the meals the group gave out.

After many local businesses closed or saw sharp drops in revenue amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups have offered help to families struggling financially by discontinuing civil service disconnects and foreclosures and, in this case, by giving out free food.
