YOUTH FOOD PROGRAMS

As part of our To-Go Meal Program, suppers are distributed to-go-style FREE of charge to children ages 18 years and younger at many area locations!

The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties is providing to-go style suppers around the community to help ensure that children don’t go hungry during this time. Each child may receive one ‘to go’ meal bag per week – including five days’ worth of suppers.

As part of our commitments to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, we want to help kids grow and thrive by ensuring access to healthy meals – regardless of their family’s financial status. These meals are FREE of charge to children ages 18 years and younger, and are made available in partnership with the State of North Dakota and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

How it Works & More Information

Each child may receive one ‘to go’ meal bag per week, which includes five suppers. Each meal includes the following components: protein, grain, vegetable, fruit and milk. All meals meet standards established by the USDA.

To-go meal bags will be available via walk-up to families in the front parking lot near each of the school’s front doors. For sites where there may be a line, we encourage you to stand 6+ feet apart from each other. If a parent/guardian is picking up a meal on behalf of their child(ren), please provide proof – ie. school id, family picture, email from daycare, etc.

Enrolled in a YMCA Learning Center? Your child will already receive meals if needed – no need to make an extra trip! Still need meals? Contact our team at 218.359.2322 and we will be happy to help!
