About Kids’ Meals
Since 2006, Kids’ Meals has been making and delivering free, healthy meals directly to the homes of hungry children. Since inception, we have given more than 8.5 million free meals to food insecure children in 43 Houston-area zip codes. Kids’ Meals is a first-responder to children ages 5 and under facing debilitating hunger due to extreme poverty.
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 the only program of its kind in the nation, and you built this program right along with us. What began as two delivery vans has grown into a fleet of 12 vans sharing not just food, but connection to more than 50 wrap-around service partners who are here to help families break the poverty cycle. But it all begins with growing healthier children, which is why we are laser-focused on feeding children age 5 and under who don’t have access to free school-based meals. Harris County is home to more than 26,000 preschool-aged children living in food insecurity. Our goal is to be feeding all 26,000 each day by 2031. We believe Houston can be the first city to end childhood hunger.
