Kicking Off the Summer Eats Program with Friends

Jun 24, 2022

The MetroWest YMCA kicked off the Summer Eats Program with an event at Arlington Street Park with partners. Project Bread distributed tomato and cilantro plants. Discovering Hidden Gems led games, sports, and painting. Many area residents attended to grab lunch and enjoy the activities, which included a live DJ and the Framingham Book Mobile. 


The Summer Eats Program provides complimentary meals to youth ages 18 and under to help fight food insecurity throughout the summer. The program will occur at the Arlington Street Park (corner of Arlington and Gordon Streets) Monday through Friday, starting on Monday, June 27. There will be activities from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm, and meals served between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm.
