The YMCA will hand out suppers at 3 locations in a collaborative effort with the School District of La Crosse and the Boys and Girls Club.

La Crosse, WI April 15, 2020—The Y is stepping up to the plate. In response to a critical need in our community- feeding children, the Y will provide free ‘grab and go’ supper at three locations beginning on Wednesday, April 15th:

  • North Community Library (1552 Kane St) 4:00-4:20 pm

  • YMCA Community Teen Center (1105 King St) 4:30-5:00 pm

  • Poage Park (500 Hood St) 5:10-5:30 pm

This food program is similar to the Y’s Summer Food Service Program, serving meals to anyone 18 and under. The food provided will be a meal that can be reheated at home.  Meals will be served Monday-Saturday. Saturday’s distribution will include a meal for Saturday and Sunday. So weekends included!

Many children in our communities depend on meals they receive during the school day, but when school is out on weekends and school breaks they still need food.   Throughout the school year and summer months, the three partners work together to identify families and places in the community where there is a need to get food in the hands of children. Our current collaboration efforts during this unprecedented time are no different. The School District of La Crosse will be preparing the meals and the Y will be delivering and handing out the meals at the three sites.  The Boys and Girls Club has assisted in identifying locations and families and will be promoting the locations.  

For questions and information, please call 608-769-2946.
