Houston, we have a problem. Every day more than 50,000 preschool-aged children in the area are unsure of where their next meal will come from. The issue is so exacerbated that in 2020, Feeding America listed Harris County as the number one county in the nation with the highest percentage of children living with food insecurity in highly populated areas.

In 2006 Kids’ Meals, Inc. was founded to fight this insecurity. Kids’ Meals’ mission is to end childhood hunger by delivering free, healthy meals to the doorsteps of Houston’s hungriest preschool-aged children and through collaboration provide their families with resources to help end the cycle of poverty. Today, the team serves an annual daily average of 8,500 children per day in Harris County, filling an important gap before kids are old enough to attend public schools and can get free breakfasts and lunches. On holidays and during the summer, Kids’ Meals has more than 12,800 preschool-aged children and their school-aged siblings on our routes.

Kids' Meals logoKids’ Meals is the first and only program that focuses on the direct delivery of meals and food where it’s needed most – the homes and families of preschool-aged children. This puts food directly in the hands of children who might otherwise have insufficient nutrition at a critical stage of development. Kids’ Meals gives every child served better nutrition today, and improved prospects for success in school and beyond.
