"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.

This program helps to fulfil the need for nutrition when school lunches are not available and during the school year when many parents struggle to provide an evening meal. Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the goal of this program and the driving force behind its success.

Hours and Locations:

  • Monday - Friday
    • 4:00 p.m. -  4:20 p.m. Geneva St. COP House, 1140 Geneva St., Racine
                                          Anthony Lane COP House, 2437 Anthony Lane, Racine
    • 4:30 p.m. - 4:50 p.m. Mead St. COP House, 2237 Mead St., Mt. Pleasant
                                         Villa St. COP House, 1146 Villa St., Racine

All meals will meet the USDA recommended nutrition allowance for children and will include vegetables and fruits. Meals are currently served to-go due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Meals are provided through the generosity of CACFP and the Racine Community Foundation. Through these organizations and community donors, we have the opportunity to provide child nutrition to the those in need in Racine.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
