Evening meals for youth will be distributed at eight city recreation centers starting Friday, March 20, under a partnership between Winston-Salem Recreation & Parks and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina. The meals are free and will be distributed Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 5 and 7 p.m. 

Meals will be provided for those 18 and under, and for individuals with disabilities who are 22 and under. To ensure that participants have something to eat every evening, they will receive two meals on Mondays and Wednesdays, and three meals on Fridays.

Social distancing protocols will be enforced to encourage the safety and well-being of citizens and employees. Meals will be distributed outside in front of buildings when weather permits. If meals are distributed inside the recreation center doors, only eight people will be allowed inside at a time.

Meal sites are:

  • Fourteenth Street Community Center, 2020 N.E. 14th St., 336-727-2891.
