School’s out for summer! For many children in southeast Texas who participate in free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch programs, summer means one thing: hunger. The Houston Food Bank works each summer to provide free breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack to any child age 18 and under at sites located in Houston and surrounding areas.

Kids do not have to be enrolled in school or a program to receive a meal. No form of ID is required.

All meals include fruit, vegetables, low-fat proteins, whole grains and milk. Breakfast, lunch or snack varies from site-to-site.

The Houston Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program partners with various community sites to provide free meals and snacks to low-income children.

“The Houston Food Bank for some of our children is a life line. We have a real opportunity to make an impact that will follow a child for the rest of their life. To see a child that was hopless go from not having any hope at all to being full of hope, full of joy, full of love and to grow is directly related to the food they receive from the Food Bank.”

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
