Summer Read, Feed, and Lead Feeding Program

FULL TUMMIES, ACTIVE MINDS, HAPPY KIDDOS

Summer can be an anxiety-provoking time for 16 million kids across the US who are struggling with hunger at home. The end of every school year means lost access to free and reduced-price lunches that provide regular nutrition to growing bodies. For a child who does not receive regular, healthy meals at home, the summer months may feel extra long.

Again this summer the Gaston County Family YMCA is happy to partner with Gaston County School Nutrition to offer summer feeding locations supported by our Y staff and volunteers. At these locations lunch options are provided for all children in our community 18 years and under.
