For The Kids.Org

We’ve all heard that eating breakfast is important, but did you know that there is an alarming number of children in Utah who are going to school hungry? 1 out of 5 children in our neighborhoods worry about food every day.
Children who regularly eat breakfast are generally more healthy and attentive in the classroom, but those who don’t, have a hard time focusing on academics or have enough energy to be physically active. For the Kids.Org works to help children have the tools they need to develop into productive adults. Their focus is to provide weekend meals to children who depend on the Federal-Free lunch and breakfast programs.
For the Kids.Org provides meals that are simple and easy to fix. Each Friday volunteers deliver bags of food so the students can come back after the weekend with full stomachs, ready to learn. They have provided more than 10,000 weekend food bags this school year alone.
SelectHealth recognizes the diligent assistance of For the Kids.Org as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
