Arkansas Foodbank Announces Kid Café Schedule

Arkansas Foodbank Announces Kid Café Schedule

 The Arkansas Foodbank today announced its continuing sponsorship of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Afterschool Feeding Program.  The Foodbank will sponsor several Kids Café sites for the 2015-2016 school year throughout their 33-county service area in Central and Southern Arkansas.  The Kids Café program provides free snacks and meals to low-income children through a variety of community locations where children already congregate after school.  Last school year, the Arkansas Foodbank distributed 100,380 pounds of food to its Kid Café sites. In the Foodbank’s service area, more than 90,000 children face food insecurity.

If you’re interested in getting an afterschool meal site in your community, contact the Foodbank’s Children Services Coordinator Cathrine Schwader at 501-569-4327.
