RENO, NV - Kids Cafe is a free meal program for children ages 1-18 years. During the school year, a free dinner is available at 25 locations throughout Washoe County (most are in public schools). Kids Cafe meals are supported by USDA and Child and Adult Care Food Programs and are available to all children without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Free nutritious meals are served to all children ages 1-18 years. Meals must be eaten on site.

What Else: While Kids Cafe meals are most often served in an after school program, children and teens do not need to be enrolled in that program or even attend that school to eat dinner. Serving times for the 2012-2013 school year have been extended to an hour in hopes that more siblings and children outside the afterschool program will take advantage of the free afternoon meal.

Where: The Food Bank of Northern Nevada serves Kids Cafe dinners at 25 different sites throughout Washoe County. The majority of these sites are at Washoe County Schools. A full listing of sites and meal times can be found at www.fbnn.org.
