School closures due to COVID-19 have meant that many students did not have access to a reliable source of food. Our pantries and distribution events ensure that youth can focus on their homework, not their hunger.

YFM manages food pantries in pre-K through 12th-grade schools and hosts regular fresh produce distributions at schools, neighborhood sites, and summer lunch program sites. All food is available for children or their guardians to take home for the evenings, weekends, and school breaks.
