Hunger is a growing crisis for 17 million children in the United States! 1 in 4 American children struggling with food insecurity resulting in academic developmental issues that present both immediate and long-term challenges. Children that suffer from food insecurity are more likely to struggle with obesity later in life. Malnourished children often experience limited development such as stunted growth, are underweight and have weakened immune systems. These issues not only affect the child experiencing food insecurity, but the entire community.
Kitchen on the Street is a faith based community partner purposing to eliminate local hunger by offering food assistance programs in Phoenix Arizona and San Antonio Texas.
We invite you to come alongside Kitchen on the Street as we serve the hungry and hurting of the community. Many hungry kids report feeling “unwanted” and “unloved” as a result of hunger… the act of giving food transcends the physical and reaches into a child’s soul; it has lasting implications on who that child will grow up to be and how they will show love.
Volunteer opportunities for individuals and families (small groups) are communicated via Enews (register on the Homepage), Facebook and Twitter. Please select the method of communication you prefer and watch for opportunities!
Thousands of children receive reduced price breakfast and lunch at school but often go hungry on weekends. These children are from families that live more than 185% below the poverty level, thus qualifying for food assistance through federally funded programs in schools.
