Summer Feeding and Kids Cafe Programs

Our after-school Kids Café and Kids Summer Feeding programs offer schools, community centers, camps and other childcare facilities access to hot meals and healthy snacks when school meals are not available. 

Meals are prepared fresh in our kitchen, delivered free of charge, and meet or exceed USDA nutritional guidelines.  Our kitchen is the largest Summer Food Service sponsor in Louisiana, serving the children that need it most.  Both Kids Café and Summer Feeding are offered through a partnership with the Department of Education and the USDA, as part of the Child Nutrition Act.

If you are an after-school childcare facility interested in receiving free hot meals for your students this fall, please contact Program and Innovation Manager Tanya O’Reilly at toreilly@secondharvest.org or 504-729-2837.

We are always looking for sponsors for these major programs, which incur a significant cost to operate. If you’d like to help underwrite Summer Feeding and/or Kids Cafe, contact Director of Development Heather Sweeney at hsweeny@secondharvest.org or 504-729-2839. 

You can also make a direct donation to support these vital childhood nutrition programs. Every $1 raised helps us provide 4 meals for children in need.
