YMCA to serve summer meals to kids
An Anonymous Donor Hunger Relief Grant is helping fund this effort.
WORTHINGTON — The Worthington Area YMCA is now offering healthy take-home meals to area youths to supplement meals served in local school districts.
The project is made possible through an Anonymous Donor Hunger Relief Grant.
"Hunger doesn’t stop just because the school day ends," said Kris Hohensee, the Y's Member Engagement Director. "The Afterschool Meal Program serves kids healthy meals that keep minds and bodies active. Thanks to the Anonymous Donor Hunger Relief Grant, our Y will be able to do more to help close the gap of food insecurity among children and teens."
To participate, any area youths aged 18 or younger may stop at the Y and ask for meals to go. They will be given a pack of five healthy meals at no cost to them. They will not have to show ID or prove Y membership.
The program runs through August.
