FREE Grab N Go Lunch Program | Ocean County YMCA

Lunch Is Served All Summer Long With FREE Grab N' Go Meals

FREE Grab N Go Lunches are available at the Y from 11AM-1PM Monday through Friday and Toms River Regional School locations listed below from 11AM-1PM on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, June 25th through September 3rd



According to, pre-pandemic, nearly 100,000
schools/institutions serve school lunches to 29.6 million students each day,
including: 20.1 million free lunches; 1.7 million reduced pay price (student pays
$.40); 7.7 million full price, and 4.9 billion lunches are served annually
(Source: USDA FY 2019 data). However, once the school year ends, only a
small percentage of these same students can access free meals over the
summer break, leaving many children without these meals.

“The Y, in partnership with Toms River Regional Schools, is working to fill that
gap by keeping children healthy and well-nourished this summer, ensuring that
kids reach their full potential,” said Peter T. Rosario, President and CEO of the
Ocean County YMCA.
