Changing lives one meal at a time.

…In the United States today, 15 million children face hunger. Consequently, one in five kids are facing greater obstacles to reaching their fullest potential. The future of America lies in our children. When hunger threatens the future of a child, it threatens the future of our nation as well.  Although food insecurity is harmful to any individual, it can be particularly devastating among children due to their increased vulnerability and the potential for long-term consequences…Feeding America


In 2015-16, The Kid's Cafe provided 215,000 snacks to the children of our community. This program operates during the school year and works with existing after school programs to provide free drinks, fresh fruit and snacks to kids enrolled in a qualifying after school enrichment program during the school year.  

As the 2016-2017 school year begins,  BMFB will sponsor 14 Kid's Cafe sites

which also provide mentoring, tutoring and homework assistance.
