Dare to Care Food Bank

 

Dare to Care Food Bank aims to lead our community to feed the hungry and conquer the cycle of need.  This mission is fulfilled through innovative programs, efficient operations and by partnering with over 300 food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens.

Today, Dare to Care partners with over 300 local, social service agencies, including 10 Parks and Recreation Community Centers, to offer free evening meals to children in our community through the Kids Cafe program.  This program allows children 18 and under to receive a warm, nutritious meal in a safe environment.  In addition to receiving a meal, each child has the opportunity to participate in academic and extracurricular activities.
