Meadville Family YMCA

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

The Meadville Family YMCA is looking to raise funds in support of our FREE DINNER PROGRAM. The program’s goal is to provide healthy, nutritious meals to families in the downtown Meadville area who struggle with food insecurity. What exactly is food insecurity? Food insecurity is defined as a state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Over 800 million people experience some form of it on a daily basis and the Meadville community is no exception; that is why this program is so important. As a YMCA, it is our job to fill in the “gaps” in the community wherever possible in an effort to help our community grow stronger together.


Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the Downtown Y serves healthy, nutritious meals to any child ages 18 and younger. The program began in early June thanks to the support of PNC Bank, DeSantis Solutions, and Sam’s Club. To date the Y has served over 1,200 meals to children in need and hopes to continue serving many more with support from Crawford County residents.


We hope to continue the program into the fall and winter months, but can only do so with community support and generous donations. Please consider giving to the Meadville Family YMCA on Crawford Gives Day!


To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. We build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.
