Welcome to the 5th Annual Juice Box Challenge! We need your help delivering more than 520,000 100% juice boxes to hungry children living in food insecure homes and we can’t do it without you! 

Grab and share our 2021 flyer here!

Join the challenge along with groups all over Houston in collecting juice boxes for our children from June 1st – August 31st, 2021.  Email Chris@kidsmealsinc.org and let Chris know you are in

We encourage everyone to virtually collect juice boxes this year through the platform YouGiveGoods. It is so easy for you to share your own personal drive with friends and family members regardless of where they live, and it’s so easy for us and you to keep track of your progress. To set up your own drive, click here.

We were absolutely blown away by the support of last year’s challenge in collecting an amazing 164,200 – 100% juice boxes!  Our 2020 Juice Box Heroes were:

First PlaceAmCap with 92,474 juice boxes
Second PlaceHalliburton 
Third PlaceColliers International 

But don’t let the numbers intimidate you from joining in the fun- we have prizes for all sorts of participation and every single juice box is needed!  Some groups donated 100 juice boxes and, believe me, we needed every single one of them. 

We have added a few new prize categories which will add to the fun of the challenge!

WINNER CATEGORIES:  We understand that every group is not able to donate thousands and thousands of 100% juice, juice boxes and we want everyone to know how appreciative we are to receive ANY amount of 100% juice boxes.  They are one of our greatest ongoing needs and one of our highest costs.  This year we decided to incorporate 3 additional winning categories to make it more fun! The categories are listed below.

  • Juice Box Hero (1st place in number of donated 100% juice boxes)
  • Juice Box Champions (2nd highest number of donated juice boxes)
  • Juice Box Superstars (3rd highest number of donated juice boxes)
  • Most Likely to End Childhood Hunger in Houston– the group who has the best social media presence. (Juice Box Challenge posts, shares, likes, etc. ) #juiceboxchallenge #feedourfuture 
  • Best in Show– the group who makes the best presentation upon delivery (costumes, music, posters, people, etc.)

  • Juice boxes can be delivered between June 1st– August 31st to 330 Garden Oaks Blvd, Houston Tx 77018.
