The East Jefferson YMCA in partnership with the Three O’Clock Project and Revolution Foods will be helping the local community with FREE breakfast and lunch pickup for children starting on Monday, March 23, 2020.
The meals are free for children in the community 18 years old and younger. This is a first come, first serve basis as the group only receives a certain number of meals per day. Families can come to the East Jefferson YMCA located at 6691 Riverside Drive in Metairie, Monday through Friday. Breakfast will be served at 8am and lunch will be served at noon. The organization asks to not line up earlier than 8am for breakfast or noon for lunch. Please enter the East Jefferson YMCA parking lot through the entrance closest to Skyzone and exit by Power Boulevard.
Three O’Clock Project
The Three O’Clock project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide healthy meals and nutrition education for at-risk students after school. The organization partners with schools, after school organizations, food vendors and local communities to provide healthy meals and education at little to no cost. Now, the group has developed a COVID-19 response and action plan to continue to provide meals to children in our community in need of a healthy meal. Click HERE for more information.
Revolution Foods serves a wide range of schools and organizations across the country from early childhood education , school districts and charter networks to community and after-school youth programs. The recently passed COVID-19 Child Nutrition Response Act has allowed this organization to continue to provide meal assistance during school closures. Find out more HERE.
