SUMMER FEEDING PROGRAM

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


Social responsibility is an important mission of the Y. Tifton is ranked 4th in the state in elementary school poverty, our role as a Y is to take social responsibility to the next level. Food for thought in 2012 gained national accreditation with Walmart's Foundation Innovation Award.  That award helped the Y provide over 30,000 nutritious meals to the community.  The Tiftarea YMCA and Walmart Foundation are keeping kids healthy this summer by fighting hunger with the help of the Walmart Foundation. Our Goal is to feed every child.
