The YMCA now offers a FREE Meal Program for ages 18 and under, daily. These meals are fresh, kid friendly, and healthy. The goal is for no child in our local community to be hungry and our local Y is stepping up to fill the need.

YMCA staff is asking that anyone wanting to sign up for meals, to stop by and put down what days you may want for the following week. They are also asking that if you sign up, please come to receive your meals! Prepared food wasted is never a good thing. Serving times will be between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The program will be beginning on Feb 27 following Mardi Gras break.

“We want to make a difference in our community while teaching our youth to nourish their bodies, and we are hopeful this meal program will do just that!” Says YMCA CEO Toni St Philip. “Financial status or pedigree doesn’t matter! We are here! Why the Y? This is Y! We are Y! So join us!”
