Summer Food Program

No more hungry children this summer

Summer Food Program

When the school ends every year, so do free meals for the millions of children in low-income households who depend on them most. This summer, five YMCA locations in our county will offer free nutritious meals to children through the national Summer Food Service Program. The program, run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), provides free meals to children aged 18 and younger while school is out of session.

“Millions of children and families are at greater risk for hunger in the summer months,” says Teresa Rogers, President and CEO of the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. “With so many children losing access to daily meals when the school lunch program is over, the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA is committed to stepping in and helping to ensure our children stay healthy and strong.

You can learn more about this program on the Volusia County website or by reading the full press release.
