TSPL logoSeneca County Community Council has partnered with local organizations to provide food for local children throughout the summer. Tiffin YMCA, Tiffin’s Salvation Army, Community Task Force, the Allen Eiry Center, Tiffin-Seneca Public Library have been working together to continue the YMCA’s bagged food program already in place at Tiffin City Schools.

The YMCA has received grants from the Wal-Mart Foundation, the Marathon Foundation and the Tiffin Community Foundation’s White Fund to provide food weekly to children, ages 3 to 15 years old. Starting June 3 through September 3 five sites will hand out food every Friday at 3:30 to 5:00 pm; those sites include the YMCA, the Salvation Army, the Allen Eiry Center, Faith United Methodist Church and Tiffin-Seneca Public Library. The First Presbyterian Church will hand out food every Saturday at 9:00 to 10:30 am.

Other community members and organizations have stepped forward to provide additional resources during the thirteen-week period. Tiffin’s Altrusa Club will also be giving away books and the Library will host crafts or activities during some of the pickup dates.

Participants must be registered to receive food. Registration forms can be found at the Library, the YMCA, the Salvation Army, the Allen Eiry Center and Tiffin-Seneca United Way.

The group hopes to continue the program next summer and will accept donations to the Tiffin YMCA for the summer food fund. For more information or to volunteer for the program, please call Debby Roszman at 419-447-3751 or email roszmade@tiffinsenecalibrary.org.
