Kids Cafe is a program of High
Plains Food Bank, offered 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.
