YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The City of Youngstown’s Parks and Recreation Department is giving away free meals to kids again this summer.

Grab and go meals are being offered to children ages 5 to 17.

You can pick up the bags at Lynn Park and at John White Park in Youngstown.

The meals are from the Children’s Hunger Alliance, which is based out of Cleveland.

The food is not allowed to be eaten on site because of COVID-19 guidelines.

Youngstown Parks and Recreation Camp Coordinator Dorphine Peace said they are understaffed because of the virus, but they still found a way to give back to the community.

“The goal is to feed as much as [they] need or whatnot, to make more friends and let them know the food is here,” she said.

The giveaways are being held from noon until 1 p.m. Mondays through Fridays until August 14.
