About Kids Cafe

Kids Cafe, a program of Feeding America, prepares, delivers, and serves healthy weekday meals to at-risk students and some vulnerable senior adults. Kids Cafe provides an early dinner each weekday, so children don’t have to go home hungry. 

Kids Cafe confronts childhood hunger by providing nutritious, balanced meals that meet USDA guidelines. These meals are prepared and delivered using the highest quality and safety standards. Meals are provided without charge and are the same for all children, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. 

Kids Cafe also provides weekday meals for at-risk senior adults who need consistent daily nutrition and fellowship  at handful of apartment complexes.

Dear Parent or Guardian:

This letter serves as a notice and reminder that meals provided to the after school programs mentioned below are always free to students enrolled in the after school programs. Meals are provided at no cost to the partner sites. High Plains Food Bank Kids Cafe program does not sell food or food related products to the after school partners. The meal service operates from October to September yearly.

If your student is enrolled in any of the following after school programs listed below, they are also enrolled in the CACFP, a USDA program which High Plains Food Bank Kids Cafe receives federal assistance dollars for serving nutritious meals. The amount of money our agency receives from this program is based on the income levels of our communities. The funding reimbursed covers the cost of food that is provided to your student. Our generous donors and supporters provide additional funding for things like transport, kitchen equipment, operational costs, etc.

To continue providing a quality meal service without any charges, we are required to collect some data at the after school site like attendance, racial/ethnic data, etc. We collect this data directly from the after school program. The data is only shared with the Texas Department of Agriculture and USDA.

Please feel free to contact Maribel Sotelo, Director of Kids Cafe via email maribel@hpfb.org or phone 806-350-1436 with any questions, comments, concerns, or complaints.
