Year Round Meal Programs

The Ottumwa YMCA is helping to fight hunger in our community by offering FREE nutritious meals to children ages 2 – 18 during the summer at 9 different site locations in 2018!


The YMCA is looking forward to another great summer with the ¬†Summer Food Service Program, where we offer free meals to youth in our community during June, July and part of August. While school is out, lunch is IN at the Y! We will be offering meals right here in Ottumwa. Stop into the YMCA for some great food and lots of fun! Don’t miss all of the great activities that will be happening during lunch this year! This program is FREE to all children 2 to 18 years of age. There is no paperwork to fill out or sign in sheets and you do NOT have to be a YMCA member to participate! Just stop into the YMCA or one of our many locations during a meal time and let them know that you would like to participate in Summer Food Service and they will direct you to the meal site!
