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.
