The YMCA at VT Meals On Main program will continue operating throughout the summer. We will be serving free food to children ages 1 to 18 at four different sites in Blacksburg this summer.

The YMCA food distribution program “Meals on Main” needs your volunteer support! There is a role for everyone in securing food access; see where you fit in.

All opportunities are open; volunteers are encouraged to return and try out different roles. Take direct action towards food sovereignty and sign up to distribute food in the NRV!
