YMCA Healthy Living Mobile Food Kitchen


We are excited to announce that we have launched our newest program, the Healthy Living Mobile Kitchen. The mobile kitchen, a 54 passenger, handicap accessible bus, donated by Kellie Dean, president of Dean Transportation, has been retrofit with a demonstration kitchen which will serve meals to children year-round in partnership with the Lansing School District’s food vendor SodexoMAGIC and the Greater Lansing Food Bank. The mobile kitchen will also distribute fresh foods and non-perishable items in neighborhoods throughout the tri-county area. Trained YMCA staff will oversee the Healthy Living Mobile Kitchen and its year-round programming.



Funding Partners

Funding partners of the Healthy Living Mobile Kitchen include the Walmart Foundation; Dean Transportation; Lansing School District’s food vendor, SodexoMAGIC; Maloney Carpet One Floor & Home; Driven Collision and Skyline Outdoor, who provided the wrapping for the bus.
