Every day in Houston, organizations like Kids' Meals feed children who lack access to free, healthy meals.
But now with Houston-area schools shut down because of the potential spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19, even more children are in danger of not getting those meals. It puts added strain on those organizations; for example, Kids' Meals is seeking volunteers to pack meals and make deliveries.
“We anticipate an increase in children in need of meals as families feel the economic impact,” Kids’ Meals Executive Director Beth Braniff Harp said about Kids' Meals efforts. “If a family owns a small business and counts on income from major events that are being cancelled, their ability to provide food for their children can be an issue. We want families to know we are here for them.”
There's another way you can help Kids' Meals. Click Virtual Food Hall, an incubator kitchen with seven virtual restaurants, catering options, and in-house delivery service, has partnered with the nonprofit in providing fresh meals to children.
Order more than $30 through Click Virtual Food Hall's app, and the kitchen will prepare and donate a fresh meal to Kids' Meals. Each meal prepared includes a protein, fresh vegetables, and a starch that may include pasta from BOH Pasta.
