Kids Cafe© & Afterschool Snack Program
The mission of the Kids Cafe© and Afterschool Snack Program is to help alleviate child hunger by providing hungry children with nutritious meals at times when other resources are not available, such as afterschool.
Kids Cafe© and Afterschool Snack Programs provide free meals and snacks to low-income children through a variety of existing community locations where children congregate such as Boys and Girls Clubs, churches or public schools. In addition to providing meals to hungry kids, all programs also offer a safe place, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff, a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities that draw on existing community programs and often include family members.
During the 2019 – 2020 school year, we provided more than 126,000 meals and nearly 47,000 snacks to needy children.
