Our Kids Cafe is an after-school meal program. Volunteers will be serving the meals to kids in the program at various locations throughout Amarillo. Each site serves a meal for an hour, Monday-Friday. Because the cafes are in school cafeterias, volunteers must be able to stand for the full hour. There is a process that each volunteer must go through before they can serve. Unfortunately we cannot accept volunteers who have not completed the training. Accordingly, Kids Cafe volunteers will also need to schedule themselves on a reoccurring basis.
