Free Summer Meals for Youth at the YMCA

Did you know that children are at a higher risk of hunger during the summer? For some children, summer is a time of fun and freedom. However, for the millions of children who rely on school for breakfasts and/or lunches, summer can be a time of hunger. Experiencing chronic hunger affects not only a child's physical well being but also their emotional and mental well being.

The good news is that many generous organizations all over the country are recognizing this problem and creating solutions! This summer our very own Sewickley YMCA  is offering free nutritious meals for youth ages 18 years and younger Monday through Friday from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm at the Oasis Teen Center.

Donations of food as well as paper products (plates, napkins, bowls, utensils) are gratefully accepted. If you are interested in volunteering, the YMCA is looking for Lunch Monitors as well as help with set up and clean up.

For more information, you are asked to contact Barb Herman at 412-741-9622 ext. 131 or bherman@sewickleyymca.org.
