As of 2023, the organization facilitates the following programs to eliminate childhood hunger in AZ
and educate the community on the issues that result from food-insecurity:
Bags of Hope: food backpacks that provide weekend nutrition to food-insecure children.
Family Food Pantries: pantries on school campuses, family resource centers and low-income medical clinics to meet the food needs of low-income families and provide them with the nutrition necessary to live healthier lives.
Fresh on Deck: interactive food/nutrition classes in Title 1 after school programs and clubs, allowing children on SNAP to learn about and experience fruits and vegetables generally outside of their family’s food budget. (Partners: Arizona Diamondbacks and United Healthcare). For more details please visit www.FreshOnDeck.net.
Taking it to the Street: Classroom presentations to educate affluent children on the issues related to food-insecurity, health and education. These sessions offer hands-on activities to include budgeting and life events that can prevent a family from being able to afford food.
Jr Board of Directors: Jr High, High School and College students participate in a year-long program wherein they learn how to be an informed and active volunteer, donor and board member while using their creative ideas to further Kitchen on the Street’s mission.
