Volunteer – Kids Cafe
The mission of the Kids Cafe program is to help alleviate child hunger in America by providing hungry children with nutritious meals at times when other resources are not available, such as after school.
Volunteers are needed to cook, serve food, coordinate homework help, mentor, visit with children and other activities as needed in Lexington. To volunteer at a Kids Cafe site please contact Katie Landon, Youth Services Coordinator, at 859-288-5316.
Kids Cafe programs provide free meals and snacks to low-income children through a variety of existing community locations where children congregate such as Boys and Girls Clubs, churches or public schools. In addition to providing meals to hungry kids, all Kids Cafe programs also offer a safe place, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff, a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities that draw on existing community programs and often include family members.
