KidZone

The primary goal of KidZone is to provide free meals to hungry children, teens, and their family members in our community. KidZone is an after-school, open recreation program which also functions as a soup kitchen. In addition to providing hot meals to children and youths, we offer programs in a safe environment, where under the supervision of trained and trustworthy staff members, children, youths, and their family are involved in educational, recreational, and social programs.

KidZone addresses the physical, social, recreational, cultural and cognitive needs of the children and teens in our community. Some of these activities include: arts and crafts, socializing through games, homework help and tutoring, literacy building, nutrition education, science lab, and financial literacy. We also host holiday and birthday parties, and endeavor to bring enrichment through these celebrations.

 

Ultimate Goals

1. To create a safe environment where all children can participate in KidZone activities while providing a nutritious hot meal.

2. Teach children how to make good nutritional choices.

3. Help children choose against violence and prejudice.

4. Draw parents towards receiving necessary help through programs such as ESL, free legal aid, GED preparation class and Food Stamp pre-screening/advocacy.
