Kids Café is an evening meal site for children who are risk of hunger. The program was developed nationally by Feeding America and has been implemented locally by River Bend Foodbank since 1995. In 2008, over 45,000 meals were served at our Kids Café sites. The Foodbank works with a variety of nonprofit agencies that are committed to fighting childhood hunger in the Quad-Cities. In just Scott and Rock Island counties alone, 18% of children aged 17 and younger live below the poverty line.
