The Duluth Area Family YMCA is participating in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)

The Duluth Area Family YMCA is committed to year-round food access and provides free meals to children during the summer. Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like the Duluth YMCA to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. This year, the Y is proud to be offering a grab and go meal program to all youth at Harbor Highlands, Gary New Duluth, and Y at the EWC to help families during COVID-19.

Meals being packed while maintaining social distancing.
Grab & Go Meals being packed up for distribution!

Meals will be provided to all children who are 18 years and younger, without charge. The Y serves healthy meals for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. The Y is here for all and is committed to equity and inclusion in this program. All meals are provided on a first come, first served basis, and the sites, times, dates/days during the summer are provided here:
