Kids Cafe

Kids Cafe® is a national initiative of Feeding America administered locally by the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Since 1993, the Food Depository’s Kids Cafes have partnered with after-school programs to provide healthy meals for children in a safe, nurturing environment.

All Kids Cafes provide enrichment programming in addition to healthful, appealing meals. Kids Cafe meals are reimbursed by the Child and Adult Care Food Program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
