To ensure students have access to a healthy breakfast and lunch during school closures, the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles has opened multiple “Grab & Go” meal distribution sites throughout LA County. Through drive-through and walk-up sites, LA Y branches will distribute free pre-packaged shelf-stable meals two times per week, providing meals for multiple days, for all youth per household age 18 and under, on a first come, first served basis.
For more information or if you have questions, please contact Rae Jin, Executive Director, at RaeJin@ymcaLA.org or 213 427 9622 .
