Kids Cafe

A Healthy Investment in Our Future

With 1 in 7 kids in Central Virginia not receiving the necessary nutrition, our Kids Cafe is dedicated to providing kids who don’t have enough to eat with healthy meals and snacks at after-school programs across our region.

By partnering with local schools and community organizations across greater Richmond and the Tri-Cities, we’re able to help ensure students have the nourishment they need to learn, grow and most importantly, thrive.

All of our Kids Cafe meals are made-from-scratch in our Community Kitchen and served family style at after-school programs. With the opportunity for students to receive mentoring and tutoring, and participate in cultural enrichment and social activities, our Kids Cafe provides the nutritional component to these programs.

Our Kids Cafe meals and snacks are well-balanced and focused on nutrition, with options that kids enjoy and have grown to love.

In order to receive meals, a site must be a non-profit that is located in a school zone whose free and reduced meal eligibility is greater than 50 percent. For information on specific locations or for more information on becoming a Kids Cafe site, please contact
