Millions of children go hungry on the weekends. Help us provide them with enough to eat.
Arizona children struggles
Kitchen on the Street (KOS AZ) began serving the community in 2007 when the Scarpinato family learned about the prevalence of food insecurity in local Arizona children. Hearing that thousands of children that received breakfast and lunch at school, but were going hungry on weekends, compelled Vince, Lisa and Taylor Scarpinato to found Kitchen on the Street as a means of bringing food and hope to children in need.
Hunger is a growing crisis for 17 million children in the United States! 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.
Einstein’s words “nothing happens until something moves” still rings true today. The power of people working alongside each other in serving the least of our community is an experience guaranteed to transform every heart. We look forward to turning hunger into hope with you… one child at a time!
