The economy is struggling and people are going without food everyday. Our innocent children are being severely affected and are in crisis.
Texas, unfortunately, is number one in our nation for food insecurity for children, according to The Houston Food Bank. In Harris County, there is an estimated poverty rate of 16.4% for individuals, but children under five are disproportionately affected by a poverty rate of 25.7% ...at 28.2% - 1,871,600 children are living in food insecure homes.
Kids' Meals, Inc. delivers nutritious meals directly to the homes of 1,400 pre-school aged children living in poverty who are in need of food, Monday through Friday, year-round. The lunches are free of cost to each family.
Please come out to support and learn more about this wonderful program!
