Kids' Meals Calls for Community Support to Replenish Food Reserves After Power Outage

Kids' Meals Calls for Community Support to Replenish Food Reserves After Power Outage

May 21 2024

In the wake of a recent power outage, Kids' Meals, the non-profit organization that has dedicated itself to battling childhood hunger, is calling on the Greater Houston Area to help replenish spoiled food reserves needed to feed local children.

Since its formation in 2006, Kids' Meals has been delivering free, healthy meals directly to the homes of hungry children, delivering more than 13.5 million free meals in particular zip codes in Harris County and Montgomery County. With a laser-focus on children age 5 and under, who don't have access to free school-based meals, the organization aims to feed 26,000 children per day by 2031.

However, recent disaster conditions have left the organization in a state of recovery. The loss of refrigerated items and the increased demand due to school closures has stretched the organization's resources thin. The community's overwhelming support has been encouraging, but the need remains, and even the smallest contribution matters.

It's easy to become a "hunger hero" today:

  • In-store donations can be dropped off directly at Kids' Meals located at 330 Garden Oaks Blvd, Houston, TX 77018
  • Visit the organization's Amazon Wishlist here  and have items shipped directly to Kids'Meals
  • Monetary donations are also accepted here  where every $2 makes and delivers a meal to a child

In addition to providing meals, Kids' Meals connects families to more than 70 wrap-around service partners designed to help break the cycle of poverty. In these challenging times, your support ensures families can restock their pantries and feed their children as they recover from the storm.

With the help of the Greater Houston Area, Kids' Meals is not just feeding hungry children, but is also enabling them to grow healthier and stronger. By assisting in this cause, you are not just providing immediate relief to families, but also contributing towards the long-term goal of ending childhood hunger across the Greater Houston Area.
