The Maui Family YMCA was proud to announce that we were able to continue to be an official SFSP site, allowing us to provide free Snacks and Supper to our community. During the closures of multiple businesses, including the Department of Education, we were given the opportunity to impact approximately 100 families.
When school was out, millions of children lost access to complete meals, placing them at risk of going hungry. The USDA Food & Nutrition Service’s meal programs worked to make sure that didn’t happen.
With the help of enlisted community-based organizations, the USDA was able to serve meals throughout the community, allowing children and families to get the nourishing food they need.
The Maui Family YMCA Grab & Go Meal Program was available Monday through Friday from April 13, 2020 through May 29, 2020. Snack and Supper were available for pick-up in the YMCA parking lot between 5:00PM and 6:00PM.
This program was available to all children in our community ages 18 and under, while supplies lasted. If children were not present during pickup, an official document that contained the child’s name was required to be presented – school letter, individual student report card, birth certificate, student ID cards, etc.
Thank you to all those who helped support this program. Thanks to people like you, we helped feed over 5000 children in need!

We can’t do this alone
We understand the uncertainty right now is at an all-time high and the thought of donating to a non-profit seems a stretch. We want you to know, the money you are able to donate to us will go directly to funding programs such as these along with our usual programs that impact the lives of our keiki and the community of Maui as a whole. Through your support, no matter the amount, you join our extensive Maui YMCA Ohana in making sure that all of Maui has a better and brighter future.
We appreciate you considering how you can help.
