FARGO — The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties is offering to-go breakfasts and lunches for children 18 years old and younger throughout the summer across the Fargo-Moorhead area.

According to the YMCA, one in six children in the United States does not know where their next meal will come from. The issue is often compounded in the summer when free or reduced-price meals are not available from schools, the organization reported.

No registration is required to receive meals, which are available at sites in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. If a parent is picking up a meal on behalf of their children, proof such as a school identification, family picture or email from a day care is required.

Each meal includes a protein, grain, vegetable, fruit and milk. All meals meet United States Department of Agriculture standards. The YMCA is offering the meals through a partnership with the state of North Dakota and the USDA.
