How You Can Help
KidsEat! is currently providing up to 2500 meals and snacks each week so hungry children in the Salt Lake Valley have food for the weekend. We supply food to children at the Boys and Girls Clubs, Neighborhood House, and several public schools. The staff at the facilities identify those at-risk children and KidsEat! helps to supply their nutritional needs. Filling our pantry with plenty of food is the first essential step toward solving this massive Valley problem. We anticipate needing food to fill hundreds more backpacks in the near future. 

You can help feed many children through KidsEat!   If you are a business, corporation, church group, neighbor or friend that can sponsor a food drive, we need you!  With your  generous help, we can provide weekend backpacks for many at-risk children and make a substantial difference in their lives. These kids will become our future educators,  business owners and community leaders.  Please begin thinking about how you can help.   All food and monetary donations go directly to helping feed the kids.  This is a volunteer organization and all contributions are tax deductible.

Salt Lake was identified as a city where hunger is a major issue for children. Many children routinely go hungry on the weekend & one in five children in the Salt Lake Valley are going home to no food. We find that shocking ! While there are several worthy programs helping feed our hungry children and the homeless, the unmet needs of many children continues to be widespread and ongoing.
