More than 3,000 times a day, smiling faces thank Kids Cafe and you for a much-needed Meal

One in four children in Arizona live with poverty on a daily basis and do not know where their next meal is coming from. Each day, the Kids Cafe® Program of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance distributes more than 3,000 late afternoon meals to kids who may not have anything waiting for them at home that night.

A sandwich. A piece of fruit. A small carton of milk. Things so many of us take for granted each day – but these items are the difference between going to bed hungry or happy.

We checked in on the kids at one of the more than 40 Kids Cafe sites this week and the smiles, happy sounds and thank-you’s said it all. Some chomped on a sandwich while doing homework. Others sipped milk while socializing. It was loud, but it was a good sound. Kids fueling up for the rest of the day. All thanks to you.

A reminder that the 11th Annual Kids Cafe Open golf tournament, presented by Barro’s Pizza, is coming up on Friday, Mar. 30 at the fabulous Wigwam. There are still openings for individuals and foursomes and still time for your business or organization to donate items for raffle prizes. All proceeds from the Kids Cafe Open go to make sure these kids – and hopefully thousands more – will not know a night without hunger and enjoy another fun-filled day of hope. For more information, please contact Christina Calio at 602.343.3148 or email

No kid deserves to go to bed hungry.

    This is a message to the webmaster. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your site: They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic than you have now. Hope this helps :) Take care.
