Adequate nutrition is vital to the growth and development of youth. In the fall of 2012, we launched our children’s initiative, KidsBites, to ensure that kids across the Delaware Valley have the food they need to thrive and grow.
We partner with Lowell Elementary School in the Olney section of Philadelphia to provide access to nutritious food for the families of all students enrolled. Food is distributed once a month allowing families of the students at the partner school to choose from available food options, including fresh produce, protein and dairy. The ability to choose promotes a sense of dignity for families.
Target Meals for Minds program supports a number of programs, including KidsBites. Citizens Bank Foundation also supports KidsBites through anti-child hunger support. BNY Mellon, First Hospital Foundation, Procter & Gamble, The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust, TEVA North America, Aberdeen Asset Management, Morgan Stanley, and the National Dairy Council have also generously supported KidsBites.
