Food insecurity is a serious issue affecting millions of children and families in the United States. Many of the families we work with have experienced periods of privation as a result of limited income, or because they live in neighborhoods that are resource poor (food deserts), or because living in shelters limits their ability to prepare meals for themselves. Beyond that, we know that a healthy, balanced diet is a critical component of every child's growth and development.
That's why we take great care in preparing healthy and delicious meals every day for our children to enjoy. Every breakfast, lunch, and snack we serve meets USDA nutritional guidelines. Every year, we serve over 25,000 meals.
