Our Mission is to end childhood hunger by delivering free healthy meals to the doorsteps of Houston’s hungriest preschool-aged children and through collaboration provide their families with resources to help end the cycle of poverty. Kids’ Meals is a first responder to children ages five-years old and under facing debilitating hunger due to extreme poverty. Every weekday, year round, from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers prepare thousands of healthy lunches consisting of a sandwich, nutritious snacks and 100% juice or milk. Our six vans deliver the meals M-F to children enrolled in our program. We currently serve six Houston-area routes that target zip codes all located within Beltway 8, where the need is critical.
What We Achieved In 2016
WITH YOUR HELP, LUNCH BAG BY LUNCH BAG, WE BELIEVE WE CAN REACH OUR GOAL OF ENDING HUNGER AMONG PRESCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN IN HOUSTON.
In addition to five nutritious weekly meals, we also provide our children with resources such as: free books quarterly, Thanksgiving turkeys, a holiday party with a toy distribution, and information on critical community resources to assist families in accessing help for other issues they are facing due to extreme poverty. We also like to think we deliver one more thing: hope.
