Children’s Programs

Children’s programs include the Kids Cafe Program, which provides a hot, healthy evening meal or nutritious snack to school children who attend participating afterschool activities; the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which offers free breakfast and lunch meals to summer program sites that serve thousands of local children in need; and the BackPack Program, which gives children at risk of hunger a back pack filled with six nutritious, child-friendly, nonperishable meals to fill the gap they face on weekends, over school breaks, and in the summer.
