Y Community Markets

Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the Month see all

July 2 @ 8:30 am 10:00 am

1 in 8 people will go hungry in Southern New England due to the COVID Pandemic. Building on our existing programs,  YMCA Southcoast has partnered with Greater Boston Food Bank to launch the Full Plate Project at five participating Y branches (Dartmouth, Fall River, New Bedford, Swansea, and Wareham) to address the growing lack of access to healthy, affordable food during economic struggles. The project will distribute 1 Million Pounds of food in 2021 to our member and neighbors. 

All are welcomed to take advantage of this free program. No registration required, first come first served.     

Participants will be asked to provide basic information including zip code and number of people living in their household. No photo ID is required. Y Community Market locations are open to all Southcoast residents, you do not need to be a YMCA member! Markets typically last an hour and half or less when food runs out, which happens often. 

Each household will receive pre-packaged bags of groceries that include a variety of nonperishable items, as well as fresh produce and meats when available. Items vary, based on availability.
