Food Program

Doing whatever it takes to feed our community.

At the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, we believe that part of doing whatever it takes means making sure the kids and families in our community always have a snack or a meal, because it might be the only one they get that day.

Our meal program is made possible in part by a grant from the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation.

Daily Food Program

We offer a daily food program at select sites so no child in our community goes hungry. During the school year, children get an afterschool meal, and during summer and school breaks we provide breakfast and lunch, all at no cost. This program is open to all youth under age 18 and kids do not have to be a Club member to receive a meal. All meals meet federal nutritional guidelines and are funded in part through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Food Service Program.

Food Pantry

So many families struggle to put food on the table even in the best of times. The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows takes some of the burden off these families by offering a food pantry program at select Club locations. Families can make an appointment to pick up a bag filled with food that can provide the basis for several days’ worth of meals, with special foods that their kids will enjoy. This program has been a gamechanger for many families in our community and we’re proud to offer it, no questions asked, to all who need help.

Food Pantry pick-up is by appointment only. To arrange a pick-up time, please contact Anne Studebaker, director of Family resources to be a part of the program at astudebaker@bgctm.org or (775) 360-2401.
