Who We Are
Kids Kupboard staff and hundreds of volunteers prepares and provides fresh healthy meals free to children who have been identified as food insecure based on school district and income data. These children live in households where income levels are below poverty and parents are struggling to provide enough food for their families. Our meal programs are provided in safe community site environments, include enrichment activities and are monitored by caring adults.
Kids Kupboard continues to provide thousands of meals each day at our own year-round site locations and in collaborative partnerships with 14 other community organizations who make our meals available to children in their afterschool and summer programs.
Ways We Help Fight Hunger
Do you know of a program that serves children. After school or summer programs that offer enrichment and activities to kids. We would like to add a nutritional component.
Volunteers keep us humming we have a staff of 5 full time employees and regular volunteers that help us to slice and dice, bag and tag lunches. We are always needing volunteers to come in and help with kitchen duty, sorting donations and giving out food.
"Thank you, I could never afford to buy fresh fruit and vegetables like this for my kids."
If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't eat today.

Kids Kupboard at a Glance
Kids Kupboard knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2000, our Nonprofit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Kids Kupboard.
What We Do
Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to the kids we serve.
