After-school and summer programs offer children a safe environment for play and development. Agencies that partner with Harvesters to offer Kids Cafe also get the opportunity to help combat childhood hunger.

Kids Cafe complements the efforts of program partners that serve children by adding a free, wholesome meal and nutrition education to their existing programs.

Kids Cafe is a national program, created in 1993 by Feeding America, the nation's food bank network. Since launching our program in 2001, Harvesters has earned national recognition for its adaptation of the program model.
