#TheYFeedsKids

Summer Youth Café (previously summer food program)

The YMCA of Indiana County/Mack Park Pool has been approved to feed any child, 18 and under, for the summer. This includes Pre-K, Head Start, childcare, as well as children from local private schools. This year we are back to feed kids a hot lunch at Mack Park Pool between 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Registration is encouraged so we know how many lunches to make. To register click here or call the YMCA of Indiana County at 724-463-9622.

If you can not make it to Mack Park Pool to eat, this year we have two additional open sites:

Summit PA Church Blairsville Campus from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
located at 40 E Market Street, Blairsville PA. Contact Pastor Collin McNight to register

Creekside United Methodist Church from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Any questions can be directed to Sherri Jordan, Director of Community Outreach and Engagement, at sherrijordan@icymca.org

Afterschool Meal Program (CACFP)

More than 13 million children and teens under 18 live with food insecurity. And when the school day ends, many of these youth are at risk of going hungry, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Y is offering an Afterschool Meal Program to provide children with nutrition so they can be healthy and succeed in school.

During the school year, stop by the YMCA of Indiana County any weekday between the hours of 3:30-5:00 p.m. to receive a free SUPER snack.
