Kids Feeding Kids Summer Breakfast Program
We are happy to announce that our fifth annual Kids Feeding Kids Summer Breakfast Program will run from July 1st to August 14th. Our 2020 program will take place each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 – 10:30 am. If you are interested in assisting our program by becoming a sponsor or providing in kind donations, please contact Lindsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are putting together our safety plan and how 2020’s Program will look differently due to COVID-19. We will post it and share once it is complete!
Studies show that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for children. Eating breakfast improves children’s educational performance, behavior and health. During the summer, food security becomes a greater challenge for many families as schools’ free and reduced cost breakfast and lunch programs disappear. In Fort Collins, only three schools serve free breakfast during the summer, and adults must pay for their meal.
FoCo Cafe’s Kids Feeding Kids Summer Breakfast Program provides families and children with healthy breakfast at no cost or in a pay-it-forward manner, where families who have the means to do so may donate to the program. Participants also engage in educational activities that encourage values of community, learning, diversity, sustainability, and overall wellbeing.
Our Needs for 2020:
- Food donations (Berries, granola, bread, nut butters, etc!
- Arts and Crafts supplies
- Paper towel/toilet paper rolls
- Bulletin Board
2019 Program Results
2019 was FoCo Cafe’s fourth year of the Kids Feeding Kids Breakfast Program. Participants enjoyed healthy breakfasts sponsored by Noosa, Ginger and Baker, Silver Grill Cafe, Rainbow Restaurant, The Waffle Lab, Friendly Critter Farms, and Revolution Pops. We were able to serve 547 meals to 38 families and 89 kids in the community. Our program also provided volunteer opportunities to 57 community members and engaged participants in 25 hands-on, educational activities. Through these fun activities, our participants learned about yoga, farm animals, insects, gardening, various crafting and creating skills, music, and more! Thank you to everyone who made 2019’s program a success!
