COVID-19 Meal Program

The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties is providing lunches and snacks around the community to help ensure that children don’t go hungry. Meals/snacks are distributed to-go-style every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday FREE of charge to children ages 18 years and younger at two locations in the FM area. These meals are made possible in partnership with the State of North Dakota and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

  • Feeding children in our programs.
  • Providing child care scholarships for essential personnel families who may not be able to afford this vital emergency child care service.
  • Retaining the staff members we need to keep our organization afloat and helping to keep them as financially whole as possible as we care for our YMCA family.
  • Ensuring that your YMCA is here for you when it’s time to return.
