Kids Cafe is a program of Feeding America, offered by High Plains Food Bank to at-risk children in our service area in need of daily, healthy meals. Kids Cafe confronts childhood hunger and obesity by providing meals that follow USDA recommended nutritional guidelines. For many children in the Texas Panhandle, the meal provided through Kids Cafe is a daily nutritious dinner they may otherwise go without.
Kids Cafe meals are prepared and delivered using today’s highest quality standards. Meals are provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
