CHILDREN’S FOOD DISTRIBUTION
Kids Café offers afternoon nutritious hot meals and snacks at various sites designated by the Housing Authority, churches and community centers, and every week day throughout the school year. We prepare approximately 8,500 healthy, nutritious meals weekly in our commercial kitchen at our central warehouse and transport these meals to 28 locations in Muscogee County, GA and Russell County, AL.
Summer Café is an expanded Kids Café program and provides nutritious lunches for children in need to additional Kids Café locations. We average providing approximately 1,700 meals per day at 43 sites for ten weeks during the summer months.
Annually, we prepare and provide 360,000 meals through our Kids Cafe Program.
Buddy Pack program serves children who live in food insecure homes and are likely to experience hunger and bridges the gap between the school week and the weekend, when free breakfasts and lunches are not available. Students are identified by the school to participate in this program, and the program is handled with discretion to protect the privacy of the student. Approximately 1,500 back packs are filled with nutritious child-friendly, ready-to-eat foods each week. Churches and organizations sponsor this outreach program.
Snack Program offers healthy afternoon snacks for children attending after school programs at churches, youth centers, day care programs and various special youth programs in the community.
We are proud to be a community partner of the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, and to provide services at significant cost savings to many United Way partners.
