Our Programs for Kids

One third of the hungry people we serve are children – 30,000 kids and their families benefit from our food assistance each week. Our children’s feeding programs, under the KidsBites Initiative, provide access to nutritious food in low-income areas for children and their families. Since its inception, KidsBites has provided almost 250,000 pounds of food to children to provide them the nutrition they need to learn and grow. To meet the needs and size of different communities, Philabundance offers several program models.

Kid's Programs BackPack

The BackPack program provides free, nutritious and easy-to-prepare supplemental meals for kids at area schools. This year, Philabundance is partnering with Kids Against Hunger Philadelphia to provide four meal kits in every BackPack. Each meal base provides 6 prepared servings, for a total of 24 servings. Philabundance also provides a pound of fresh produce. BackPacks are provided to all enrolled students and families at the partner school or community center unless the family specifically declines to participate.

Honestly I wouldn't have enough without Philabundance.
