Summer can be a difficult time for many low-income families who rely on free and reduced price lunches during the school year to make ends meet. Our Kids Cafe program fills that gap by providing free delicious lunches at 11 sites across Western Washington. Thanks to you, thousands of parents had one less thing to worry about this summer.

In addition to high quality, Kids Cafe also does a great job at quantity. This past summer, we served over 13,000 meals, a 72% increase over last year. By partnering with programs where kids already play and learn Kids Cafe can be easily scaled up to reach more high-need neighborhoods. Meaning your support can reach more kids in more communities across Western Washington.
