The stress of school may be over for teens and children, but with the loss of access to daily meals through the school lunch programs, they may not have three square meals a day. To help, the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA has teamed up with the Walmart Foundation to fill the kids' summer with food and fun.

The Walmart foundation granted the Volusia Flagler Y’s Summer Food Program $5 million for the event.

The program is available to all children now through Aug. 16 at the following locations:

Ormond Beach Family YMCA: 9-10 a.m., noon to 1 p.m. 
Southeast Volusia Family YMCA: 9 a.m. to noon 
The Y Port Orange Family YMCA: 7:30-9 a.m.; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Iglesia Bautista Emanuel (Deltona): 7-8 a.m.; 11 a.m. 1 p.m.
Deland Family YMCA: 9-10 a.m.; 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
