LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — To best serve the community in this time of need, the YMCA of Southern Nevada is excited to announce that they will reopen their free meal sites on April 20.

The Y has partnered with the Clark County School District to provide free, pre-packaged meals to ages 18 and under. Individuals do not have to be Y members to participate.

These sites will be open Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. –1 p.m.

This will be a “curbside service” method – Y staff will meet participants at their vehicles to distribute the meals.

Participants are asked to please follow the parking and line-up directions given by Y staff on-site, and to not exit their vehicles. All children who are receiving a meal must be present at the time of distribution.
