Food insecurity is a huge need in low-income apartment communities. Most ISD's are offering Grab & Go meals at the public schools, however there are so many students who live too far from school to take advantage of these meals. Kids-U provides these meals on-site in the apartment community where the students live.
Kids-U is feeding children ages 0-18 living in low-income apartment communities. Children are provided 6 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 12 milks per week. We began serving 10 apartment communities which house our Kids-U after school tutoring programs. Since the pandemic started we have added 10 more low-income apartment communities serving meals at each location and 6 more properties which will begin service in the next week.
To date during this crisis Kids-U has served over 20,000 meals to children living in low-income apartment communities in Dallas, Carrollton, & Arlington.
