There are 13.1 Million American children residing in food insecure homes.
Food insecure children tend to be less active inside and outside the classroom.
KFI created A Day Without Hunger to address food insecurity.
Human beings have certain basic needs. We must have food, water, air, and shelter to survive. If any one of these basic needs are not met, then humans cannot survive. Unfortunately, there are children in every county in the United States who live in food insecure homes. Our team will be working year around to ensure that our kids have access to nutritious food.
A Day Without Hunger
KFI Reaching Far and Wide
Over 16 Years we have provided meals for kids during the holidays in:
1 U.S. Territory
School Resource Store
After 16 years of our holiday meals program, we are pivoting to a School Resource Store. Kids First Initiative will be opening a School Resource Store at Rogers Elementary. We will make available to the young people, items that will help them as they navigate through their school day. Kids will pay for the items using Cheetah Bucks. They can earn bucks, through good behavior, attendance, academics, or volunteering. The store will also offer packages for the students who might be experiencing food insecurity at home. The store will be staffed, run, and managed by students from Rogers. We will be bringing in some of our retail partners to train the staff and show them the ins and outs of running a retail store. The Grand Opening for the store will be Thursday, May 26, 2022.
Below you will find some of the items that will be available in the store:
