Summer Youth Café (previously summer food program)

Summer Youth Café, also known as the Summer Food Service Program, will be returning to Mack Pool & the Y’s Summer Day Camp but with some changes for 2020! Previously, Mack Pool was able to serve lunch to all youth ages 18 and under but this year any child wanting to receive a lunch needs to register at the Y. If you are a child that already receives free or reduced lunches at the local schools you just need to register with your name and school that you attend.  Click here to register.

If you are not currently receiving free or reduced lunches at school or are homeschooled you will need to click here to register and complete the following Household Application for Summer Meals to determine eligibility.  If 50% or more of the individuals registered for the Summer Youth Café qualify for free or reduced lunch, we will be able to extend the free lunch to all that are registered.  If less than 50% of the individuals register qualify, lunches can only be served to the eligible participants.

If you have any questions please reach out to Jen Villa at jenvilla@icymca.org or at 724-463-9622

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.
