Hunger is a growing crisis for 17 million children in the United States! 1 in 4 American children struggling with food insecurity resulting in academic developmental issues that present both immediate and long-term challenges. Children that suffer from food insecurity are more likely to struggle with obesity later in life. Malnourished children often experience limited development such as stunted growth, are underweight and have weakened immune systems. These issues not only affect the child experiencing food insecurity, but the entire community.

Kitchen on the Street is a faith based community partner purposing to eliminate local hunger by offering food assistance programs in Phoenix Arizona and San Antonio Texas.

We invite you to come alongside Kitchen on the Street as we serve the hungry and hurting of the community. Many hungry kids report feeling "unwanted" and "unloved" as a result of hunger… the act of giving food transcends the physical and reaches into a child's soul; it has lasting implications on who that child will grow up to be and how they will show love.

Kitchen on the Streets is working to eliminate food shortages by providing Bags of Hope (food backpacks) to children that would otherwise go hungry on weekends. Plus, hosting Family Food Pantries on school campuses to assist food insecure families.

Thank you for your patronage.
