According to Feeding America, one in every twelve people is facing hunger in Massachusetts. For children, that statistic is one in eleven. As part of our mission to provide programs and services that promote healthy spirit, mind and body for all, the Merrimack Valley YMCA is working to fight food insecurity in our community through our food programs.
This #GivingTuesday, November 30th, you can help Merrimack Valley YMCA food programs ease the burden on our neighbors who are struggling.
Please help us provide holiday meals to an individual or a family by donating to the Y on #GivingTuesday. For just $10, you can provide one dinner. A donation of $50 will feed a family of five.
$30 = 3 hot dinners for families
$75 = 25 super snacks for children in our childcare programs
$100 = 1 family with groceries for a month
$250 = 100 nutritious dinners for teens
$500 = 200 nutritious dinners for teens
$1,000 = 350 healthy meals for preschoolers
$2,500 = 30 families with groceries for one month
