The Y Feeds Kids
One in six children in the U.S. don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
The summer is a particularly vulnerable time for kids who rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year, but for many, the needs continue year-round.
At the Y, we know that children who receive daily nutrition are set up to succeed. That’s why we’re helping kids reach their full potential by providing free access to healthy snacks and meals when school’s out for summer, year-round after school, and even on weekends.
See our list below of food programs open to any youth in the community.
