ABOUT

Open to all school-age children eligible for free or reduced lunch in school, Meals 4 Kids is a community-based program that ensures Seacoast children are food secure 365 days a year.

Meals 4 Kids was designed to inspire children to enjoy healthy food and build the critical skills they need to access and prepare healthy food. M4K delivers direct and long-lasting benefits, with children expanding the variety of foods they eat, making more nutritious choices, gaining self-sufficiency skills and learning how their food choices affect their health.

Program components include:

+Healthy Food: Each week, children receive healthy ingredients and recipes for 10 meals.

+Accessibility: We offer 6 mobile locations

+Education & Skills: We engage kids with food demonstrations, kid-friendly recipes, and cooking and fitness challenges.

 

 

In 2017,

more than 400 children participated in M4K each week. M4K participation rates are twice the national average for children’s hunger-relief programs, and we expect participation rates to grow as we continue to leverage strong community partnerships.
