Food Lifeline Cafe Helps Hungry Kids

The USDA Summer Food Service Program’s Food Lifeline Kids Café is growing and is set to serve more kids and teens free snacks and meals this summer.

Kids Cafes are located throughout Snohomish, King, Island and Skagit counties. The service provides nutritious meals to needy children. About one in four kids in Western Washington are at risk for going hungry. This could affect their health, school work and their development.

Food Lifeline works with the food industry and its surpluses to come up with creative solutions to stopping hunger, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste.

Every weekday June 24-Aug. 22 (except July 4) kids can get free meals at these locations.
