The Brown Bag Bus
The Brown Bag Bus is the Heart of the Valley YMCA's answer to the problem of hungry children. The Brown Bag Bus feeding program delivers daily meals and snacks to children impacted by the closure of schools in Madison, Marshall and Morgan counties due to COVID-19. The YMCA is providing hundreds of meals every day that otherwise would have been supplied through school lunch. The Brown Bag Bus will run through July.
Heart of the Valley YMCA partners with the YMCA of Greater Montgomery, the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, The C.A.R.E. Center, Friends of New Market, Madison County Schools, the Neighborhood Christian Center and Westminster Presbyterian Church in Decatur, and Marshall County Schools. The Brown Bag Bus is part of the USDA Feeding Program and the YMCA Nutrition Initiative.
