On Dec. 17, the Green Bay Packers Foundation awarded $500,000 to 188 civic and charitable organizations throughout Wisconsin, including the Door County YMCA. A $5,000 grant was given to the Door County YMCA’s Summer Food Program.

The goal of the program is to ensure that all children in our community have access to nutritious meals during the summer months and seeks to make eating nutritionally a “way of life” for children. In keeping with the Y’s commitment to healthy living and social responsibility, the Door County YMCA provides summer-long a free lunch for all children ages 18 and under in Sturgeon Bay Mondays through Fridays.
