Youth Food Shelf


Eagle Brook Kid Packs (4)CEAP’s No¬†Hassles¬†Youth Food Shelf
welcomes children ages 12 to 21, and comes at a time when homelessness is at its highest. Over 450 children in our community hop from couch to couch every night, relying on the generosity of friends and extended family for food and shelter.

The No Hassles Youth Food Shelf is a program of CEAP. It is staffed by YMCA Street Works. This partnership affords youth not only a unique, no-questions-asked place to get food, but a safe place to get additional resources and socialize.
