At the Y, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn from caring adults who model healthy living—and make healthy choices themselves. That’s why we're committed to promoting physical activity and nutrition in everything we do.

Promoting nutrition that is kid-friendly

  • Thanks to the Y, children in Davidson Co. and Sumner Co. Summer Adventure and Northwest and Robertson Co. Day Camps enjoyed 18,408 breakfasts and 17,974 lunches in summer 2017—at no additional cost to their families.
  • During the 2017-18 school year, we expanded this meal program to 29 before- and after-school sites in Nashville and Montgomery County, as well as Robertson County Y-CAP. Throughout the year, we served 141,499 meals and 254,716 snacks (as of May 2018).

Putting the 'active' in activities

  • Whether it’s a game of dodgeball in the gym, a dance-off in the cafeteria or capture the flag on the playground, we provide a variety of opportunities for students to have fun while staying active.
  • To encourage active play, children in our programs spend no time in front of a screen.

Committed to the highest standards

  • Our food program follows HEPA standards, a nationally-recognized set of guidelines for nutrition and physical fitness.
  • In 2015, the State of Tennessee awarded Fun Company the “Healthy Happy Meals Award” for serving nutritious foods that were both creative and kid-friendly.
