Gleaner's Food Bank

Unfortunately, Gleaner's Food Bank no longer comes to the YMCA. They have moved to the First Christian Church in Greensburg.

FREE LUNCH PROGRAM

The Decatur County Family YMCA will be a second year sponsor of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This is a program that offers free meals to any Decatur County resident 18 years and younger. Not only will these meals help hundreds of children get the nutrition they need for good health, but it will also help alleviate the strain on family food budgets when school is out. This year we will are excited to be offering the meals at two open sites where anyone from the county is welcome to attend.

Meals will be served Monday - Friday from May 29, 2012 – July 31, 2012. Meals will be served on a first come first served basis. Please call Elizabeth Paulsen at the YMCA if you are interested in this program. This program is funded in part by the Indiana Department of Education: Office of School and Community, Walmart, and the United Fund. Meals are prepared by the Decatur County Memorial Hospital and meet all USDA regulations.

Sites: Briarwood Apartment Complex (11:00-12:00 pm; 810 Briarwood Way) & Alexanders Trailer Court (12:00-1:00 pm; 638 Park Rd.)
