Family YMCA of Greater Augusta is on a mission to ensure no child goes hungry. The program combats child hunger by providing free meals and snacks to anyone under 18. The need is even greater this year due to camp and childcare closures related to COVID-19.
“Hunger has a lasting impact on the development of children,” says Danny McConnell, President/CEO of the Family YMCA of Greater Augusta. “Giving kids access to nutrition-filled meals allows kids to focus, learn and become empowered to reach their full potential. The Y’s Summer Food Program helps make sure kids can enjoy healthy and delicious meals and snacks all summer long.”
