Kids' Café

In partnership with Capital Area Food Bank, DPR provides after school supper meals as a part of the Kids' Café program at select DPR locations.

Kids' Cafe is a national program of Feeding America that provides afterschool and summer meals to children ages 5 - 18. The DPR Kids' Café sites are located in communities where at least 50% of the children in local schools are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. All of our Kids' Café sites offer some sort of enrichment activities for youth (homework help, mentoring, tutoring, clubs, computer skills, and more). With a focus on healthy eating, the Kids' Café menu features fresh produce in every meal.

*Please note, the Kids' Café program is not an open/"drop-in" feeding program.  
Please contact the center directly for further information or to inquire about enrolling a child in the Kids' Café program.
