Food distribution Friday

Food Distribution Friday

The Muskegon YMCA is here to serve the community and has worked to help alleviate food insecurity.

The menu is intentionally filled with fresh fruits and vegetables and follows closely to the YMCA of the USA guidelines of Healthy Eating. Each week, over 8,000 meals are prepared and distributed via a meal bundle. Each free meal bundle contains 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches.

Distribution is a drive through and contact-free on Houston near the corner of 3rd and Houston on Fridays from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm for students 18 & under. To date, over 200,000 meals have been distributed, and counting.

If you are interested in volunteering by packaging on Thursdays or distributing on Fridays, please contact us.

YMCA Veggie Van

The YMCA Veggie Van, a mobile farmers market, runs year round, making
stops in urban neighborhoods throughout Muskegon, ensuring that fruits and
vegetables are available to people who otherwise have limited access to fresh
produce.

Additionally, we accept SNAP, Senior Project Fresh/Market FRESH, and
the Double Up Food Bucks Program
