What is a Kids Cafe?
Through our Kids Cafe program, we tackle childhood hunger by providing a daily hot meal and weekly nutrition education activities to at-risk youth at community partner sites each evening after school.
The meals we provide, prepared by the Cleveland Community Kitchen, make it possible for each site to provide a complete meal every day to participating children.
To ensure that the children—who are often more selective eaters than many adults—are eating the foods we provide, we use a dietician to help ensure that the kid-friendly menus our staff creates are appealing while meeting government standards for healthy eating.
