Student Meal Packing Event - Monday, May 14

Friday, May 11, 2018

In preparation for the upcoming May 16 Teacher Workday, the Downtown Durham YMCA will be hosting a meal packing event on Monday, May 14, 5 - 8 p.m. This event will take place in the gymnasium, and we greatly appreciate the consideration of our members as we share that space and modify our activity schedules accordingly.

Together with support from our local schools, faith communities and service organizations, volunteers will be working to prepare 4,000 meals to be distributed to students who may not have access to their regular school meals on May 16. 

Organizations and individuals interested in supporting the May 16 food efforts may contact Forrest Perry ( for additional details.

Additionally, Durham Public Schools will be providing meal services at several schools on May 16 through an extension of their summer feeding programs. Additional details are available here.

Teacher Workday child care will be available through the YMCA with current plans for programming at the Downtown Durham YMCA and Hope Valley Farms YMCA. Program details and registration links are available here.
