About this Event

Let There Be No Empty Bowls In 2020.

In our community, one in five children are considered food insecure. Food insecurity exposes these children to the risk of delayed cognitive development, behavioral problems, and diet-related diseases. The Kids Café Program is one way that we help address this problem.

In 1995, Columbus Parks and Recreation, the Columbus Housing Authority and Feeding the Valley partnered together and started the Kids Café Program for children in our community.

Through our Kids Café Program, we are able to provide 376,000 hot, nutritious meals and after school snacks to children annually. Who are these children we feed? We have sites in public housing neighborhoods, Truth Spring Academy, after school programs at Open Door Community House, the YMCA, all Parks and Recreation sites, Girls Inc., and various after school programs at churches. In the summer, we expand this program and provide meals to more children in our service area. And, throughout the year more than 300 of our partner agencies are trying to meet the needs of assisting families with healthy, nutritious foods.

Our Kids Café Program is partially funded by the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley and the balance is raised through grants and fund raising efforts.
