OPEN COMMUNITY LUNCH
|**FOOD BANK CLOSED Monday, July 4th**|
Food Bank for Larimer County will provide free summer meals in Fort Collins, Loveland and Estes Park. The Food Bank expects to serve 56,000 meals this summer. Since 2005, the Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program has served free, nutritious meals to low-income children ages 5-18 after school and during the summer. Nearly one in three students in Larimer County schools qualifies for free or reduced lunch. For these children, summer vacation means no school meals and the prospect of going hungry. The Food Bank picks up when school lets out by providing free, nutritious meals to low income children ages 5-18 at sites throughout Larimer County.
Children from families that struggle with food insecurity are more likely to experience poor physical health and hospitalization, developmental delays, and often struggle in school. Furthermore, many of the risks of being food insecure are the same as those of becoming obese including limited resources; lack of access to healthy, affordable foods; cycles of deprivation and overeating; and high levels of stress. While the public health crises of obesity and diet related diseases affect all segments of the population, they disproportionally impact low-income families. The Kids Cafe program works hard to address these issues.
With two full-time kitchen staff, including an executive chef, and a registered dietitian, the focus of the Kids Cafe team is on nutrition. Each Kids Cafe meal meets or exceeds USDA guidelines and is prepared fresh in the Kids Cafe kitchen by volunteers under the supervision of Food Bank staff. Menu items are kid tested, great tasting and nutritious.
