More than a million Americans live in a “food desert,” meaning they live in an area where people need to travel over half a mile in urban areas or over ten miles in a rural area to access healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables. To bring attention to this issue, From July 22 through July 24, the Y is challenging Washington County residents to participate in the YMCA’s Food Desert Challenge.
In an effort to improve healthy outcomes for the community through their commitment to HEPA, the Washington County Family YMCA served 1,655 meals to local youth during the month of June through their Summer Food Service Program, in partnership with the Indiana Department of Education.
On Monday, July 18th, from 5:00pm-7:30pm, the Washington County Family YMCA will host an open registration day at their YMCA campus in Salem, IN to enroll preschool students in both their Salem and West Washington Preschool sites.
Designed for adults to laugh, have fun, develop new friendships, and exercise, this program encourages participants to form their own team of six or more, or to contact the YMCA to be placed on a team! Sunday afternoon games will be held.
Ages 3-9 are encouraged to come out and "Let Confidence Kick In!" Saturday morning games will be played in a positive environment based on mutual respect with equal playing time rather than “win-at-all-costs.” This 5 week program is focused on the fundamentals and encouraging physical activity and fun with character building in our youth. $30 members, $40 non-members.
