We live in the tight-knit East Texas. We have 1,001 churches. There aren't hungry people here! Yes there are!
Each night at the Carlile unit and twice per week in the extensions, the Club offers Kids Cafe. For nothing more than the regular fee, the kids get a healthy nutritious meal and hopefully don't go home hungry.
Kids Cafe programs provide free meals and snacks to low-income children through a variety of existing community locations where children congregate such as Boys and Girls Clubs, churches or public schools. In addition to providing hot meals to hungry kids, some Kids Cafe programs also offer a safe place, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff, a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities that draw on existing community programs and often include family members.
• Kids Cafe is the most expansive child-feeding program in the nation.
• There are over 1,600 established Kids Cafes in operation.
• Over 12 million children live in food insecure households.
