Hunger is a tragic side effect of the coronavirus. According to Feeding America, one in seven adults in North Carolina struggles with hunger. One in five children doesn't know where they will get their next meal. The YMCA of the Triangle is committed to changing those odds.

In fact, the Y has provided more than one million meals since September 2020. Select YMCA facilities serve as regional food hubs for meal distribution for families in Wake County. Through a partnership with Wake County, the Y will provide one to two weeks' worth of shelf-stable and fresh food through December 2021.

Families can visit any of our locations and receive food at no cost. Volunteers are needed at each of our hub locations. Children 12 and younger may participate when accompanied by an adult volunteer.

The Poole Family YMCA, 2110 Aversboro Rd., Garner, first and third Tuesdays, 5-7pm.

The YMCA at Knightdale Station, 484 Knightdale Station Run, Knightdale, first and third Thursdays, 4:30-6pm.
