Afterschool Program

The Kids Café Afterschool Meals Program serves children between October and May at various locations around our service area

The Community Food Bank’s Kids Café Afterschool Meals Program provides free meals to children 18 and under during the school year. A partnership between the Community Food Bank, the Alabama State Department of Education, Feeding Alabama, and- most importantly- community organizations like yours, Afterschool Meals provides free afternoon snack and supper to children throughout central Alabama five days a week, all school year long. All meals served through the program are completely free of charge, not only to participating children, but also to partner sites.

Potential partners might include but not necessarily limited to the following:

  • child daycare facilities
  • public housing authorities/communities
  • churches
  • 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that work with children or families with children
  • public libraries
  • municipalities and/or organizations having authorized access to public space where children congregate (e.g., community centers)
