Summer Meals & Activities

In accordance with the Y’s commitment to Healthy Living and Social Responsibility, the YMCA of  Jefferson County will once again be providing FREE lunches and snacks this summer for all kids ages 18 and under thanks to the generous donations from members of your community!

All snacks and meals are healthy and comply with the USDA nutrition guidelines. Meal service is open for 30 minutes.

The Summer Meals and Activities Program is made possible through collaborations with USDA Summer Food Service Program, School’s Out Washington‘s Feed Your Brain Grant, United Good Neighbors, Jefferson County Library, Chimacum School District Jefferson County Parks and Recreation and YMCA of Jefferson County. We are grateful for food donations from WSU Gleaners and local farms, as well as the many volunteers and financial support from local service clubs, organizations and churches.

No identification or proof of income level required. All children welcome!

One in six children in the U.S. don’t know where their next meal is coming from. The summer is a particularly vulnerable time for kids who rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year. At the Y, we know that children who receive daily nutrition are set up to succeed. That’s why we’re helping kids reach their full potential by providing free access to healthy snacks and meals when school’s out for summer.

Please check back in May 2018 for the new Summer Meal sites. 

During the summer of 2017 we served over 5,000 delicious lunches and snacks in East Jefferson County.


When school's out, it's time to relax, decompress, and have fun with friends. Yet taking a break from school does not mean kids development is on vacation. Summertime at the Y focuses on the three key drivers of impact that inspire healthy youth development journeys: achievement, relationships and belonging. (Ages 5-12) Pre-registration is required to participate in activities at these sites.
