The YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo will once again participate and serve as a host site for the summer meal distribution program, MEET UP AND EAT UP. Both the Maple and Portage sites will provide a combination of breakfast, lunch, or snacks to youth 18 and under. 

"As a major site for youth programming, it's a logical partnership to serve as a distribution site," says VP of Child Care, Youth Services, and Grants, Bobby Ludwick. "We are also ideally located for access to food in both neighborhoods that we serve. We're pleased to participate in this critical program that addresses summer childhood hunger. No child should go without food."


  • Breakfast: 8:45a - 9:30a
  • Lunch: 11:45a - 12:30p


  • Lunch: 11:45a - 12:30p
  • Snack: 3p - 3:30pm

Adults can purchase individual meal kits for $2.00.
