Central Texas Food Bank Kids Cafe
Kids Cafe, an official program of Feeding America, aims to alleviate child hunger in America by providing nutritious meals at times when other resources might not be available, such as after school. Central Texas Food Bank partners with organizations with existing after-school programs in safe, supervised settings where children can go to receive a free meal and get homework assistance, participate in physical activities and other educational or enrichment activities.
Kids Cafe is offered by food banks nationwide at more than 2,600 locations across the country. The Central Texas Food Bank operates 47 Kids Cafes in Central Texas, feeding more than 700 Central Texas children each day. In the 2016-2017 school year, the program served more than 136,000 meals.
