Is nothing less than realizing the full potential of Alaska’s Children by ending child hunger with sustainable, grassroots, child-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption throughout Alaska.
Kids Kupboard leadership and staff have been operating as a state approved sponsor of child feeding programs for a combined 10 years. Our steady growth, amazing community partnerships resulting in more than 20,000 volunteer hours and more than 68,000 meals provided to more than 700 children in 2016 are testament that the community wants this program to continue it’s important work. We are committed to working towards a day when no child is hungry!
When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, supportive adults, and good nutrition.
Afterschool programs that participate in CACFP give children and teenagers the nutrition they need, and draw them into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning.
Kids Kupboard staff have been state approved sponsors of USDA child feeding programs for more than 8 years. We operate during the summer under the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and during the school year under the Child and Adult Care Feeding Program (CAFP). Participating in these programs allows us to receive reimbursement for a portion of our costs from federal funding. However, not all of our costs are reimbursed. Kids Kupboard relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and funders to help us continue to reach so many of our communities most vulnerable children.
