This national after-school program was created by Feeding America™ and is administered locally by the
Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore
. It is a place where children ages 5 through 18 can go to receive free, nutritious evening meals in a safe, supportive environment. 17 Kids Cafes are currently operating, conveniently located in low-income neighborhoods so participating children can walk or bicycle to these sites after school.

In fiscal year 2014 we served over 240,000 meals and over 114,000 snacks to youth through this program.
