Social Services

To bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing encouragement and tools. We’re here day in and day out to provide the resources our communities need to address the most pressing social issues: child welfare, education, and substance abuse. We work to make sure every child, family, and community have what they need to achieve their best.

Food Service Program

When the school year ends, so do free meals for the millions of children who depend on them most. So each summer, the Y works to continue feeding children through the Summer Food Service Program—a program by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide free meals to children aged 18 and under while school is out of session. More than 300 Ys nationwide will provide seven million nutritious meals to 70,000 children each summer.

According to the USDA, 19.5 million low-income children receive free or reduced meals during the school year. As part of the Y’s summer food program, children aged 18 and under will continue to receive two meals a day–or one meal and a snack—while school is out of session. Not only will this provide thousands of children much-needed meals this summer, but it will also help alleviate the strain on family food budgets.

Healthy bodies create healthy communities, so we care about child nutrition.

Summer Food Service Program: Both Camp Lyndon and the West Barnstable Day Camp offer free lunch to children that qualify through the Department of Education’s Summer Food Service Program. Children receive delicious and nutritious meals each camp day prepared by our food service staff in Camp Lyndon’s kitchen. Campers enjoy meals that range from meatball subs to chicken parmesan sandwiches to chef salad and is always served with a nice cold milk. We pride ourselves in serving our campers high quality and well-balanced meals. This invaluable service helps families provide a healthy meal for their child while at our camps.
