YMCA to Open Free Meal Sites For Kids During School Shutdowns
Healthy lunches will be available for any child starting week of March 23.
Sacramento, CA – The YMCA of Superior California announced today that three Meal Sites for children in the Sacramento community will begin serving lunches during the week of March 23. Per Federal Guidelines, a child must be present to receive a meal, however, requirements that the meals have to be consumed onsite have been waived. These sites will operate curbside so that people will not have to leave their vehicles.
“The YMCA’s commitment to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility has not wavered during these critical times” says Sharna Braucks, President & CEO, YMCA of Superior California. “Making sure kids continue to have free nutritious meals available during this crisis is another way the YMCA can continue to be of service for our community.”
Meals will be prepared by the Elk Grove Unified School District. The YMCA is in the process of adding more sites in partnership with the City of Sacramento.
Each summer, the YMCA of Superior California serves more than 500 free lunches a day to youth at partner locations throughout our community, through our Summer Food Program.
