FOOD FOR KIDS

Child with backpackChildren who consume nutritious food are better students. They concentrate better, they retain more information and they perform better on tests. Children whose meals and diets are unsupervised, irregular and without nutritional content are at high risk for obesity, diabetes, stroke, heart disease and bone and joint deterioration.

Boy with glassesTarrant Area Food Bank's agency network serves many children who depend on the free and reduced-cost school breakfast/ lunch program for the one or two nutritious meals they will eat all day.

To help fill the meal gap, the Food Bank establishes BackPacks for Kids and SummerPacks programs, Kids Cafes, Summer Feeding Programs, Farmers Market Nutrition Program (WIC) and School Pantry Express delivery of fresh produce and other foods for school children and their communities.
