Community Meal Distribution Sites

Through our network of community partners, Every Meal helps ensure children and families experiencing food insecurity have access to food that is nutritious, delicious, and relevant. This is similar to our Winter Meal Program and Summer Meal Program, but with the year-round availability of our meal bags at various community locations throughout the Twin Cities and beyond.

  • What: Free shelf-stable meal bags with 4-5 pounds of good food including a variety of fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains, and entrees.
  • When: Year-round availability.
  • Where: Use the below map to find a convenient location* or click here to see the map in a new window. Hours for meal bag pickup vary by location.
  • Who: Any child, family, or individual who needs it.
  • How: Simply go to the front desk and ask for a meal bag. No qualifications are required, and no information is collected.

* YMCA locations are open to the public. You do NOT need to be a member of the YMCA to receive food. You do NOT need to provide contact information at any location.
