"Hungry" is no way to spend childhood

Every day The Salvation Army helps cure hunger by providing nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

Racine has a 29.4 percent childhood poverty rate. 

Many children not only struggle with hunger, but they are also undernourished.

How we help cure hunger

Healthy Kids Diner

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to school-age children, The Racine Salvation Army Healthy Kid's Diner began in May 2019 serving dinner meals to school age children. Many children in our community lack the opportunity to have a hot healthy dinner meal, especially during summer when free and reduced-priced school lunches are unavailable.

"Our program fills a void created when school lunches are not available and during the school year when many times parents aren't able to provide an evening meal," said Major Ken Nicolai, Corps Officer at the Racine Salvation Army. "Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program."

Hours and Locations:

  • Sundays: Noon 
  • Monday - Friday: 5 p.m. at The Salvation Army of Racine, 1901 Washington Ave., Racine. 
  • Tuesdays: 5 p.m. at Villa St. COP House, 1146 Villa St., Racine 
  • Wednesdays: 5 p.m. at 16th St. COP House, 1900 16th St., Racine 
  • Thursdays: 5 p.m. at Geneva St. COP House, 1140 Geneva St., Racine

All meals will meet the USDA recommended nutrition allowance for children and will include vegetables and fruits. 

Meals are provided through the generosity of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine, the Optimist Club of Racine, and the Racine Community Foundation we have the opportunity to provide child nutrition to the neediest in Racine.
