As a light rain fell Wednesday morning, Helena Pendergraft, 10, happily munched a Granny Smith apple near the main entrance of Vacaville Public Library-Town Square in downtown Vacaville. With each bite, her eyes and smiles seemed to widen.
Standing nearby, her sister, Trinity, 6, pointed to a small box of chocolate milk when asked which item was her favorite part of the free bagged lunch. To her, the lender, foil-wrapped pizza, half-dozen celery sticks, and a red delicious apple were also-rans on the yummy meter.
