Portage YMCA to Offer Free Meals to Families in COVID-19 Outbreak

The Portage YMCA will be offering free meals to families in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Meal distribution will take place in the Portage YMCA parking lot every weekday between 5pm and 6pm. Ready-to-eat meals will include a lean protein, whole grain, low-fat milk, vegetable and fruit. These grab-and-go meals are brown-bagged and given to both children and adult caretakers. Two meals will be distributed at once: dinner and the following day’s lunch. Free meal delivery is also available by email request for those without transportation. The free meals are made possible through funding from No Kid Hungry’s Summer Innovation Grant. There is no income requirement or restriction to receive meals.  Rules do require that each member of the family be present in the vehicle at the time of pick up.  Here is a link for more information.
