Feeding Program

1 in 4 children in the U.S. don’t know where their next meal is coming from and Tennessee is top 10 in US for food deprivation. Approximately 80% of White County students qualify for the free and reduced lunch program.

At the Y, we know that children who receive daily nutrition are set up to succeed. That’s why we’re helping kids reach their full potential by providing free meals four days per week.
