As part of the At-Risk After-School Meal program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Minnesota Department of Education, the partnership helps fill a nutritional gap for at-risk youth. The nonprofit anticipates serving 100 to 200 meals each day at the two clubs.

Jerry Gamble Club, 2410 Irving Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55411 10 AM and 1 PM. For more information: 612-522-3636.

Club hours at these locations during the summer are 9am – 5:30pm, Monday through Friday. Seventy-six percent of Club members in the Twin Cities qualify for free and reduced lunch during the school year. This partnership reflects Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities commitment to providing youth who enter our doors the tools to lead a healthy life.
