The Y is feeding kids in need

Posted: Updated:

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The YMCA in Thomasville does not want a single child to go hungry this summer. Beginning June 1st, the Y will provide meals to any Thomas County child in need. They plan to provide 4,000-5,000 meals at 34 locations around the county.

No child under the age of 18 will be turned away. This summer food program also provides many summer jobs. "We actually hire about 70 people during the summer to work the sites. We have site supervisors and the drivers who deliver the meals to the sites," said YMCA Summer Food Director Cindy Quigg.

20 of the sites will just serve lunch, while the other 14 will serve breakfast and lunch. The program runs every week day through July 22nd.
