READ, FEED, AND LEAD WITH
GASTON COUNTY SCHOOLS AND THE YMCA
FULL TUMMIES, ACTIVE MINDS, HAPPY KIDDOS
Summer can be an anxiety-provoking time for 16 million kids across the US who are struggling with hunger at home. The end of every school year means lost access to free and reduced-price lunches that provide regular nutrition to growing bodies. For a child who does not receive regular, healthy meals at home, the summer months may feel extra long.
Again this past summer the Gaston County Family YMCA was happy to partner with Gaston County School Nutrition and the Mount Olive Pickle Company to offer summer feeding locations supported by our Y staff and volunteers.
